The link is a good cautionary tale regarding Buyer Beware when it comes to the often murky world of food safety regulation compliance - especially when different country's agencies are involved.

 

Customers want the *bling* and there's a lot of confusion about what's *safe* or *safe enough*  vs what's food grade.

 

This post has a lot of food for thought.

Obviously there's still much confusion about these products which is why there's even a discussion on it in the first place. I'm sure the company named in the article wasn't trying to mislead anyone. I have had nothing but positive experiences with that company. The lady who runs it speaks English, but it's not her first language, so that probably makes dealing with suppliers even more difficult. And it is the suppliers who are to blame for all the confusion.

Agree - there are plenty of unscrupulous suppliers. And, there's a lot of bulk packages that get broken down into smaller containers and resold, repackaged and resold.....

As far the bill HB2113, that died on the floor, it used very general language...if it had passed "AS WRITTEN" it would have included isomalt and gumpaste.


I'm not trying to be an attorney, I was just trying to pass along information, in case they didn't know. Jeez!


I didn't ask you for a legal interpretation.  I asked you who is making the claim that gumpaste and isomalt are not food items.

What is the bedazzled coating made of?
The coating is a combination of sanding sugars and food coloring, that has absolutely no texture or taste to it and is completely safe for all ages. The main ingredient in our product is starch based (similar to gum arabic), however, it is truly the PROCESS, and not the product used that creates the "Bedazzled" effect...and that is our trade secret!
