We have two holiday cookies we are developing right now. The base cookie is the same all the way to the icing, but the color of the stamp is different (one red and one green). I am looking at ways I can created one label for both of them. Can I state on the ingredients label can contain less than 1% of the following... Green color, red color? They are used at 0.03% by weight.

 

Thanks in advance.

Do you actually need to state color name - I mean, red or green? For instance, on our ice cream labels we just state "color(s)", have been working fine.

Does your regulatory labelling body not require colors be individually labelled under their "usual name"? 

 

FDA States:

The name of an ingredient shall be a specific name and not a collective (generic) name, except that:

(1) Spices, flavorings, colorings and chemical preservatives shall be declared according to the provisions of § 101.22.

(2) An ingredient which itself contains two or more ingredients and which has an established common or usual name, conforms to a standard established pursuant to the Meat Inspection or Poultry Products Inspection Acts by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, or conforms to a definition and standard of identity established pursuant to section 401 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, shall be designated in the statement of ingredients on the label of such food by either of the following alternatives:

(i) By declaring the established common or usual name of the ingredient followed by a parenthetical listing of all ingredients contained therein in descending order of predominance except that, if the ingredient is a food subject to a definition and standard of identity established in subchapter B of this chapter that has specific labeling provisions for optional ingredients, optional ingredients may be declared within the parenthetical listing in accordance with those provisions.

(ii) By incorporating into the statement of ingredients in descending order of predominance in the finished food, the common or usual name of every component of the ingredient without listing the ingredient itself.
