Eddie Edible Ink Compliance Information

Eddie Edible Ink Compliance Information

On the page linked above you will find the latest on the following:
  1. NSF Certification
  2. USA/Canada Ink Technical Data Sheets and SDS
  3. Europe Ink Technical Data Sheets and SDS
  4. Note: Two different types of ink are available; one is approved for use in the USA and Canada, the other for the European Union (EU). Cyan and Yellow are identical in both ink formulations. The only difference is with the composition of the Magenta ink. The USA Magenta ink contains Red Dyes #3 and #40 and Blue Dye #1, which are not permitted for use in food colorings in the EU. The EU Magenta contains carmoisine, which is not approved for use in food colorings in the USA. To learn which Magenta ink is approved for use in countries other than the USA and Europe, please first check with your local authorities. Or, contact us at Primera. We may have additional information available that is specific to your country.

Eddie is now officially certified 100% Kosher (Pareve). This achievement is a significant milestone for Eddie, as it signifies that the entire process, beyond just the ink itself, is now kosher-certified. While our inks have always been kosher, it is important to note that simply supplying kosher ink is insufficient for claiming kosher certification. The entire process, including the ink cartridge or tank filling environment and equipment, undergoes an inspection and must meet the strict standards set by a recognized kosher certification organization. In selecting our certifying group, we have chosen the Wisconsin Kosher Supervisors. They are internationally recognized for their expertise in kosher certification and are conveniently located in the neighboring state to the east of us. 

Halal Certificates
