Reference Number: NOP/ADP-0035
July 24, 2020
Health Canada’s Food Directorate completed a detailed premarket safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking approval for the use of potassium polyaspartate to inhibit crystal formation in wine. The results of the premarket assessment support the safety and efficacy of potassium polyaspartate. Consequently, Health Canada intends to enable the use of potassium polyaspartate by modifying the List of Permitted Food Additives with Other Accepted Uses as described in the information document referenced below.
The purpose of this communication is to publically announce the Department's intention 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.
Health Canada's Food Directorate is committed to reviewing any new scientific information on the safety in use of any food additive that is permitted in Canada or is under consideration for approval in Canada, including potassium polyaspartate. Anyone wishing to submit new scientific information on the use of this food 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 “Potassium polyaspartate (NOP-0035)” in the subject line of your e-mail. Health Canada is able to consider information received by October 6, 2020, 75 days from the date of this posting.
