The definition of turmeric oleoresin in this paragraph is for the

as setting forth an official standard for turmeric oleoresin under 

section 401 of the act.

    (2) Color additive mixtures made with turmeric oleoresin may contain 

as diluents only those substances listed in this subpart as safe and 

suitable in color additive mixtures for coloring foods.

    (b) Specifications. Turmeric oleoresin shall contain no more residue 

of the solvents listed under paragraph (a)(1) of this section than is 

permitted for the corresponding solvents in spice oleoresins under 

applicable food additive regulation in parts 170 through 189 of this 

chapter.

    (c) Uses and restrictions. Turmeric oleoresin may be safely used for 

the coloring of foods generally, in amounts consistent with good
