Notice of Modification to the List of Permitted Food Enzymes to Enable the Use of Chymosin from Aspergillus niger DSM 32805 in Certain Dairy-based Foods
Reference Number: NOM/ADM-0165 [2021-04-27]
Health Canada's Food Directorate completed a premarket safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking approval for the use of chymosin from Aspergillus niger DSM 32805 in certain dairy-based foods.
Chymosins from sources other than A. niger DSM 32805 are already permitted for use in Canada as food enzymes in dairy-based foods.
The results of the premarket assessment support the safety of chymosin from A. niger DSM 32805 for its requested uses. Consequently, Health Canada has enabled the use of this enzyme from this source described in the information document below by modifying the List of Permitted Food Enzymes, effective April 27, 2021.
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.
