Red yeast rice (Monascus purpureus) could be a solution as a natural dye that was safe for consumption, besides Angkak was also high in antioxidants. This study aimed to determine the effect of  added concentration of Angkak solution as a natural dye on tomato sauce to organoleptic receiving power. This study used experimental design, involving 90 panelists. Angkak solvent used in this study, ie 0%, 10%, 20% and 30%. The test results of significance value of color parameters, aroma, texture and taste were all valued 0.00 (<0.05) then Ho was accepted which meant there was influence of addition of angkak solvent in tomato sauce. More preferred color parameters was the addition of angkak by 30% for more preferred  aroma parameters was the addition of 10% angkak solvent, where as for taste and texture parameters of tomato sauce products added more preferred angkak solvent was the addition of a solution of 20 %. The results of the tomato sauce that could be used as a basic recipe that would become a marketable product was tomato sauce with the addition of angkak solvent by 20%. This research was expected the producers and consumers could make and choose healthy food products to be consumed and could be used as information alternative materials for synthetic dye substitutes.
