Sec.  73.300  Carrot oil.



    (a) Identity. (1) The color additive carrot oil is the liquid or the 

solid portion of the mixture or the mixture itself obtained by the 

hexane extraction of edible carrots (Daucus carota L.) with subsequent 

removal of the hexane by vacuum distillation. The resultant mixture of 

solid and liquid extractives consists chiefly of oils, fats, waxes, and 

carrotenoids naturally occurring in carrots. The definition of carrot 

oil 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 carrot oil or carrot oleoresin under section 401 of the act.

    (2) Color additive mixtures for food use made with carrot oil may 

contain only those diluents listed in this subpart as safe and suitable 

in color additive mixtures for coloring foods.

    (b) Specifications. Carrot oil shall contain no more than 25 parts 

per million of hexane.

    (c) Uses and restrictions. Carrot oil may be safely used for 

coloring 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 standards.

    (d) Labeling requirements. The label of the color additive and any 

mixtures prepared therefrom intended solely or in part for coloring 

purposes shall conform to the requirements of Sec.  70.25 of this 

chapter.

    (e) Exemption from certification. Certification of this color 

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

therefore batches thereof are exempt from the certification requirements 

of section 721(c) of the act.
