APPEARANCE & PRESENTATION
When used in liquids, Brew Dust® is designed intentionally to be a more subtle alternative in both "shimmer" & "glitter" effect than our Brew Glitter® glitter products. Each unique color option is designed to specifically enhance drinks color variations while still shimmering when swirled. Brew Dust® will not dissolve, however it will settle to the bottom if left unattended for long periods of time. Simply stir & serve and watch your guests be amazed!

CALIFORNIA PROPOSITION 65 (SAFE DRINKING WATER AND TOXIC ENFORCEMENT ACT OF 1986)
Does not expose people to any chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm.
Complies with food standards and purity criteria pursuant Commission Regulation (EC) Nos. 1881/2006, 1333/2008, 231/2012
EU Commission Regulation (EU) 2022/63 of 14 January 2022 amending Annexes II and III to Regulation (EC) No 1333/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council as regards the food additive titanium dioxide (E 171);
ARTICLE 2: Until 7 August 2022, foods produced in accordance with the rules applicable before 7 February 2022 may continue to be placed on the market. After that date, they may remain on the market until their date of minimum durability or ‘use by’ date - click here
SHORT TERM IMPACT/ SOLUTION: Interpreted, this means in the short term, products containing Titanium Dioxide E 171 can continue to be purchased, inventoried and sold throughout the EU market up through August 7th, 2022. After the date of August 7th 2022, products containing Titanium Dioxide, E171 may continue to be sold in the EU market until their date of minimum durability or ‘use by’ date. For reference, our our edible glitter, luster dust, highlighter dust, Brew Glitter products all have a minimum durability/ shelf life of 5+ years - companies in the EU that purchase our edible glitter, luster dust and highlighter dust products can continue to sell said products over the next 5 years, through 2027.
LONG TERM IMPACT/ SOLUTION: In response to the amended EU legislation, the Brew Glitter® R&D team has been working on new “like” products that are similar to current luster dust, metallic highlighter dust and other glitter products that do not contain Titanium Dioxide, e 171 to satisfy the EU customer base as a long term solution. Those products are still in the R&D stage and will be available in June of this year (2022), which is well before the new EU regulation change takes effect on August 7th, 2022.
Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB, https://www.ttb.gov/)
The Brew Glitter® sales teams and customer service teams frequently receive the question as to whether Brew Glitter® and/ or Brew Dust® products are approved by the TTB (https://www.ttb.gov/). Brew Glitter® and/ or Brew Dust® are not alcoholic beverages nor are they a tobacco product, therefore as a governing body/ agency we do not work with the TTB in any capacity. Brew Glitter® and Brew Dust® are both mica-based pearlescent "edible glitter" food products, and as such, we adhere to the FDA food ingredient compliance standards. If an alcoholic beverage company wants to use our edible glitter products as a raw material/ ingredient as part of their manufacturing/ production process, then said company would need to work with the TTB directly to get direction for approval for their specific alcoholic drink/ beverage.
