Notice of Modification to the List of Permitted Food Enzymes to Enable the Use of Glucoamylase from Aspergillus niger 41SAM2-54 as a Food Enzyme in Various Foods - Reference Number: NOM/ADM-0116
Health Canada's Food Directorate completed a detailed safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking approval for the use of glucoamylase from Aspergillus niger 41SAM2-54 in the manufacture of various standardized and unstandardized foods.
Glucoamylase from certain other source organisms, including other strains of Aspergillus niger, is already permitted for use in Canada as a food enzyme in the same foods as those requested, with one exception, at a maximum level that is consistent with Good Manufacturing Practice.
As no safety concerns were raised through Health Canada's assessment, the Department has enabled the use of the food additive glucoamylase from Aspergillus niger 41SAM2-54 described in the information document below by updating the List of Permitted Food Enzymes, effective May 25, 2018.
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 Glucoamylase from Aspergillus niger 41SAM2-54 as a Food Enzyme in Various Foods - Reference Number: NOM/ADM-0116, please contact our publications office or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading "hpfb BCS nom-adm-0116-eng".
Health Canada's Food Directorate is committed to reviewing any new scientific information on the safety in use of any food additive, including glucoamylase from Aspergillus niger 41SAM2-54. 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. If you wish to contact the Food Directorate electronically, please use the words "glucoamylase (NOM-0116)" in the subject line of your e-mail.
