Canada proposed to enable the Use of Ground Limestone as a Colouring Agent in Unstandardized Confectionery

Health Canada completed a detailed safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking approval for the use of ground limestone as a colouring agent in hard and soft candies and in edible inks for writing on certain confectionery.

Therefore, Health Canada intends to modify the List of Permitted Colouring Agents (https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/food-nutrition/food-safety/food-additives/lists-permitted/3-colouring-agents.html) as described in the information document referenced below.

The purpose of this communication is to publically announce the Department's intention in this regard and to provide the appropriate contact information for any inquiries or for those wishing to submit any new scientific information relevant to the safety of this food additive.
