    (a) Identity. (1) The color additive tomato lycopene extract is a 

red to dark brown viscous oleoresin extracted with ethyl acetate from 

tomato pulp followed by removal of the solvent by evaporation. The pulp 

is produced from fresh, edible varieties of the tomato by removing the 

liquid. The main coloring component is lycopene.

    (2) The color additive tomato lycopene concentrate is a powder 

prepared from tomato lycopene extract by removing most of the tomato 

lipids with ethyl acetate and then evaporating off the solvent.

    (3) Color additive mixtures made with tomato lycopene extract or 

tomato lycopene concentrate may contain only those diluents listed in 

this subpart as safe and suitable for use in color additive mixtures for 

coloring food.

    (b) Specifications. (1) Tomato lycopene extract shall conform to the 

following specification: Lycopene, not less than 5.5 percent of 

oleoresin as determined by the method entitled ``Qualitative Analysis of 

Lycopene, Its Isomers and Other Carotenoids in Different Concentrations 

of Lyc-O-Mato[reg] (Tomato Oleoresin) and in Tomato Pulp by 

High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC),'' S.O.P. number : Lab/

specification: Lycopene, not less than 60 percent of oleoresin as 

determined by the method identified in paragraph (b)(1) of this section.

    (c) Uses and restrictions. Tomato lycopene extract and tomato 

lycopene concentrate may be safely used for coloring foods generally in 

amounts consistent with good manufacturing practice, except that they 

may not be used to color foods for which standards of identity have been 

issued under section 401 of the act, unless the use of added color is 

authorized by such standards.

    (d) Labeling. The label of the color additive shall conform to the 

requirements of Sec.  70.25 of this chapter.
