Notice of modification to the List of Permitted Food Enzymes to enable the use of lipase from saccharomyces cerevisiae LALL-LI in bread, flour, whole wheat flour and unstandardized bakery products
Reference Number: NOM/ADM-0207 [2023-09-13]
Health Canada's Food Directorate completed a premarket safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking approval for the use of lipase from Saccharomyces cerevisiae LALL-LI in bread, flour, whole wheat flour and unstandardized bakery products.
Lipase from other sources is already permitted for use in Canada in the foods requested by the petitioner. However, prior to this Notice, the source organism, S. cerevisiae LALL-LI, was not a permitted source for any food enzyme in Canada.
The results of the premarket assessment support the safety of lipase from S. cerevisiae LALL-LI for its requested uses. Consequently, Health Canada has enabled the use of lipase from S. cerevisiae LALL-LI as described in the information document below by modifying the List of Permitted Food Enzymes, effective September 13, 2023.
The purpose of the information document is to publicly announce the Department's decision in this regard and to provide the appropriate contact information for those wishing to submit an inquiry or new scientific information relevant to the safety of this food additive.
