I am working on a product that uses white, red, and black quinoa. In the past my company has typically been very wordy on ingredient statements and would list out the specific color of quinoa. I am wondering if according to FDA regulations we are ever under the obligation to list the specific color of an ingredient like this in the statement? We would like to list this as:
Whole Grain Quinoa
Whole Grain Tricolor Quinoa
Rather than individually list the colors out.
I have done some supermarket product surveys of what other brands do and some package white, red, and black quinoa together and simply list the ingredient as "quinoa". Others list them all out. I realize that what other companies are doing does not necessary mean they are doing it correctly so was hoping someone could help me out with this question. I tried to find information in cfr on a standard of identity for tricolor quinoa, ect. but was not able to find anything.
