Notice of Modification to the List of Permitted Food Enzymes to Enable the Use of Protease from Trichoderma reesei RF8963 in Hydrolyzed Animal, Milk and Vegetable Protein [2020-08-27]
Reference Number : NOM/ADM-0150
Health Canada's Food Directorate completed a premarket safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking approval for the use of protease (serine protease) from Trichoderma reesei RF8963 in hydrolyzed animal, milk and vegetable protein.
Proteases from sources other than T. reesei are already permitted for use in Canada as food enzymes in various foods, including hydrolyzed animal, milk and vegetable protein.
The results of the premarket assessment support the safety of protease from T. reesei RF8963 for its requested use. Consequently, Health Canada has enabled the use of protease from T. reesei RF8963 described in the information document below by modifying the List of Permitted Food Enzymes, effective August 27, 2020.
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 Protease from Trichoderma reesei RF8963 in Hydrolyzed Animal, Milk and Vegetable Protein - Reference Number: NOM/ADM-0150, please contact our publications office or send an e-mail to email@example.com with the words "hpfb BCS nom-adm-0150-eng" in the subject line of your e-mail.
Health Canada's Food Directorate is committed to reviewing any new scientific information on the safety in use of any permitted food additive, including protease from T. reesei RF8963. Anyone wishing to submit new scientific information on the use of this additive or to submit any inquiries on this modification may do so in writing, by regular mail or electronically. If you wish to contact the Food Directorate electronically, please use the words "protease (NOM-0150)" in the subject line of your e-mail.
