Sec.  172.894  Modified cottonseed products intended for human 
consumption.

    The food additive modified cottonseed products may be used for human 
consumption in accordance with the following prescribed conditions:
    (a) The additive is derived from:
    (1) Decorticated, partially defatted, cooked, ground cottonseed 
kernels; or
    (2) Decorticated, ground cottonseed kernels, in a process that 
utilizes n-hexane as an extracting solvent in such a way that no more 
than 60 parts per million of n-hexane residues and less than 1 percent 
fat by weight remain in the finished product; or
    (3) Glandless cottonseed kernels roasted to attain a temperature of 
not less than 250 [deg]F in the kernel for not less than 5 minutes for 
use as a snack food, or in baked goods, or in soft candy; or
    (4) Raw glandless cottonseed kernels may be used in hard candy where 
the kernel temperature during cooking will exceed 250 [deg]F for not 
less than 5 minutes.

    (b) The additive is prepared to meet the following specifications:
    (1) Free gossypol content not to exceed 450 parts per million.
    (2) It contains no added arsenic compound and therefore may not 
exceed a maximum natural background level of 0.2 part per million total 
arsenic, calculated as As.
    (c) To assure safe use of the additive, the label of the food 
additive container shall bear, in addition to other information required 
by the act, the name of the additive as follows:
    (1) The additive identified in paragraph (a)(1) of this section as 
``partially defatted, cooked cottonseed flour''.
    (2) The additive identified in paragraph (a)(2) of this section as 
``defatted cottonseed flour''.
    (3) The additive identified in paragraph (a)(3) of this section as 
``roasted glandless cottonseed kernels''.
    (4) The additive identified in paragraph (a)(4) of this section as 
``raw glandless cottonseed kernels for use in cooked hard candy''.
    (d) The Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental 
Protection Agency have determined that glandless cottonseed kernels 
permitted for use by this section are a distinct commodity from glanded 
cottonseed.
