Colorado Hemp in Food & Commercial Kitchens- CDPHE
Posted on Saturday, 18 June 2016
Are hemp food and products regulated under the same guidelines as any food? YES!
On October 9, 2015 GHC received a response to a prior inquiry with the Boulder County Health Department about the use of Hemp, specifically hemp extracts/concentrations, in the commercial kitchen, in food products which was also forward to the CDA and further relayed, ongoing, in both private and public forums by GHC. This is the understanding currently by the Colorado Industrial Hemp Industry.
Yes, if it follows the permitted guidelines as described in the letter you provided.
2. Can hemp plant extractions/concentrated (misspelling - should be "concentrate") be used in a commercial kitchen to mix in or add to other products?
Yes, the use of hemp extracts as a food ingredient is not considered an adulterant. We would treat this like any other produce/herb type of ingredient if the product is sold as a food at retail.
3. Are hemp food and products regulated under the same guidelines as any food?
Yes, since hemp extracts (produced under the permitted guidelines) are simply considered a food additive they are treated the same as any other food product.
Please note that this information is a re-post in the "Hemp News" Section from a prior page on GHC found else where and also sent via email to multiple parties. Same exact info, without alteration.
