Sun Chemical Performance Pigments recently announced it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for Food Contact Notification (FCN) 1311 covering its C.I. Pigment Red 122 as a colorant for food-contact use at 1.5% for all food types and use conditions, except packaging for infant foods (0-6 months).

FCN 1311 reportedly allows for the highest pigment loading levels in the industry, along with the broadest conditions of use. These loading levels can provide a broader shade range in the coloring food packaging materials and more extensive conditions of use over competitive products currently available.
