Notice of Modification to the List of Permitted Food Enzymes to Enable the Use of Mannanase from Aspergillus niger AE-HCM in Liquid Coffee Concentrate - Reference Number: NOM/ADM-0103
Reference Number: NOM/ADM-0103
Health Canada's Food Directorate completed a detailed safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking approval for the use of mannanase from Aspergillus niger AE-HCM in the manufacture of liquid coffee concentrate.
Mannanase is a type of hemicellulase enzyme. Hemicellulases from Bacillus amyloliquefaciens and from Bacillus subtilis are already permitted for use in the manufacture of liquid coffee concentrate.
As no safety concerns were raised through Health Canada’s assessment, the Department has enabled the use of the food additive mannanase described in the information document below by updating the List of Permitted Food Enzymes, effective September 14, 2017.
The purpose of this communication is to publically announce the Department's decision in this regard and to provide the appropriate contact information for any inquiries or for those wishing to submit any new scientific information relevant to the safety of this food additive.
To obtain an electronic copy of the Notice of Modification to the List of Permitted Food Enzymes to Enable the Use of Mannanase from Aspergillus niger AE-HCM in Liquid Coffee Concentrate - Reference Number: NOM/ADM-0103, please contact our publications office or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading "hpfb BCS nom-adm-0103-eng".
Health Canada's Food Directorate is committed to reviewing any new scientific information on the safety in use of any food additive, including mannanase. Anyone wishing to submit new scientific information on the use of this additive or to submit any inquiries may do so in writing, by regular mail or electronically.
