Hi Everyone,

We have an ingredient in our product that contains DIPOTASSIUM PHOSPHATE, COLORED WITH ANNATTO AND TURMERIC OLEORESINS,

Can this be listed as simply "natural color" on our label? Does it have to be calleed out individually? Does it have to call it out as added color?

Please help! We want to make sure we are doing it right!

Thanks!

~Polly

Using the term "natural color" is prohibited by the fda unless it is natural to the product itself.  

 

both need to be declared.   You dont need to identify their purpose.  ("colored with")

 

IF, those ingredients do not have an effect on your final product you may not need to declare them at all.    see https://www.accessda....cfm?fr=101.100
