the following solvents:
The definition of paprika oleoresin in this paragraph is for the purpose
of identity as a color additive only, and shall not be construed as
setting forth an official standard for paprika oleoresin under section

(2) Color additive mixtures made with paprika oleoresin may contain
as diluents only those substances listed in this subpart as safe and
suitable in color additive mixtures for coloring foods.

applicable food additive regulations in parts 170 through 189 of this
(c) Uses and restrictions. Paprika oleoresin may be safely used for
the coloring of foods generally in amounts consistent with good
manufacturing practice, except that it may not be used to color foods
for which standards of identity have been promulgated under section 401
of the act, unless the use of added color is authorized by such

in part for coloring purposes prepared therefrom shall bear, in addition
to the other information required by the act, labeling in accordance
with the provisions of Sec. 70.25 of this chapter.

additive is not necessary for the protection of the public health, and
