Canada: proposed new food colour - lycopene

Health Canada recently published a proposal to provide for the use of lycopene extract from tomato in a host of food categories. The comment period is open until June 6, 2017. This colour is listed under Table 3 of the Codex Alimentarius General Standard on Food Additives (known as the GSFA). The proposal can be viewed here: http://hc-sc.gc.ca/fn-an/alt_formats/pdf/consult/nov-avp-0024/nop-avp-0024-eng.pdf
