Notice of Modification to the List of Permitted Sweeteners to Enable the Use of Steviol Glycosides from Saccharomyces cerevisiae CD15380 and CD15407 in a Variety of Foods
Reference Number: NOM/ADM-0132 [2019-05-14]
Health Canada's Food Directorate completed a premarket safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking approval for the use of Steviol glycosides from Saccharomyces cerevisiae CD15380 and CD15407 in a variety of foods.
Steviol glycosides from Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni is already permitted for use in various standardized and unstandardized foods. However, steviol glycosides from the 2 indicated strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae is not. As no safety concerns were raised through Health Canada’s assessment, the Department has enabled the use of steviol glycosides from S. cerevisiae CD15380 and S. cerevisiae CD15407 in all foods where steviol glycosides from Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni is permitted and at the same maximum levels of use.
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.
