Notice of Modification to the List of Permitted Firming Agents to More Clearly Identify Certain Canned Vegetables - Reference Number: NOM/ADM-0186 [2022-08-05]
From time to time, Health Canada may make minor modifications to the Lists of Permitted Food Additives, such as changes to correct errors, improve clarity, achieve consistency in terms used in the Lists, or to align the Lists with amendments of Part B of the Food and Drug Regulations. These minor changes are not intended to alter the permitted uses of food additives.
To add clarity and to ensure consistency in terminology, Health Canada has replaced "tomatoes" with "canned tomatoes", and "canned vegetables" with "canned (naming the vegetable)" and "unstandardized canned vegetables" in the List of Permitted Firming Agents, effective August 5, 2022.
The purpose of this communication is to publically announce the Department's decision in this regard
and to provide the appropriate contact information for inquiries or feedback on this modification.
