On Tuesday, December 15, 2016, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published draft guidance for industry entitled “Fruit and Vegetable Juice as Color Additives in Foods.”  The agency is requesting comments on the draft guidance by February 13, 2017.  FDA issued the guidance to respond to a number of questions relating to whether certain color additives made from various plant materials meet the specifications in the fruit juice or vegetable juice color additive regulations.  These inquiries have led to questions as to what the Agency means by the terms used in these color additive regulations.  Please see this Lieberman PLLC Regulatory Alert for more information.
