Cochineal extract :  is a red dye made from crushed cochineal beetle. It’s now listed on the ingredient label as cochineal extract or carmine (before 2009 it didn’t need to be). 70,000 beetles may be killed to produce one pound of this red dye. Has been implicated in IgE mediated allergies. EWG rating: 1
