FDA Clarifies Applicability of Color Additive Regulations for Vegetable and Fruit Juice

The Food and Drug Administration is reopening the comment period on its draft guidance for industry: fruit juice and vegetable juice as color additives in food for 60 days to allow interested persons additional time to submit comments. The draft guidance, when finalized, will clarify when juices from fruits and vegetables may be used as color additives in food under existing authorizations without additional premarket review and approval from the agency under its color additive petition process.

Interested parties may submit comments by written letter or electronically starting March 1, 2017.
