10. List of Permitted pH Adjusting Agents, Acid-Reacting Materials and Water Correcting Agents (Lists of Permitted Food Additives)

This List of Permitted pH Adjusting Agents, Acid-Reacting Materials and Water Correcting Agents sets out authorized food additives that are used to alter or control the acidity or alkalinity of a food or to prevent a food from drying out. It is incorporated by reference in the  Marketing Authorization for Food Additives That May Be Used as pH Adjusting Agents, Acid-Reacting Materials and Water Correcting Agents.

Note: A transition guide has been created to provide stakeholders with further information on the Lists of Permitted Food Additives as well as guidance on how to interpret and use these lists.
