Sensient notes that revision of the permitted Food Additives Regulation recently issued by the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) Standardization Organization (GSO) is scheduled to come into force on November 30th, 2016. The new regulation now requires that products which contain Tartrazine (Yellow 5) INS 102, Sunset Yellow (Yellow 6) INS 110, Azorubine (Carmoisine) INS 122 and Allura Red (Red 40) INS 129 will have to carry warnings about possible “negative effects on activity and concentration in children” in line with previous legislation adopted in Europe.

“These changes in the labelling requirements of food colours will trigger brand owners to reformulate their key brands with natural colours or colouring foods as has happened in Europe,” said Neil Philpott, Head of Sensient’s Dubai Office. “Sensient Food Colors has gained wide experience in this area following the Southampton Study. We will be focusing our resources to support customers by working closely with them on successful end product conversion from synthetic to natural colours.”

Sensient Technologies is a global manufacturer and marketer of colors, flavors and fragrances based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The company employs 3,986 people worldwide.
