It's Time for More Spirulina Coloring Applications

Thanks to a helpful petition from colors supplier GNT USA (Tarrytown, NY), FDA now permits spirulina as a colorant for food products. The rule is effective on May 13, 2014, and it overrides previous legislation that restricted spirulina as a colorant to candies and gums.
