I'm looking into listing the following color additives in our US labels (snack product):
Curcumin (E100), Riboflavin (E101), Beetroot Red (E162), Anthocyanins (E163), Brilliant Blue FCF (E133).
I have 2 questions regarding this:
-According to FDA Food Labeling Guide, ingredient listing for artificial colors depend on whether the artificial color is a certified color. What certified means in this case? is it a certification for the batch used? Brilliant Blue is subject to certification but I'm not sure what this means?
-What ingredient listing is used for natural colors? are they just labelled by their names? (no lake number or Color Number)
thanks in advance for your help!
