NOM to the List of Permitted Food Enzymes to Enable the Use of Maltogenic alpha-Amylase from Bacillus subtilis ROM in Bread, Flour, Whole Wheat Flour, and Unstandardized Bakery Products
Health Canada's Food Directorate completed a premarket safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking authorization for the use of maltogenic alpha-amylase (α-amylase) from Bacillus subtilis ROM in bread, flour, whole wheat flour, and unstandardized bakery products. The requested maximum level of use for this food enzyme is Good Manufacturing Practice.
The results of the premarket assessment support the safety maltogenic α-amylase from B. subtilis ROM for its requested uses. Consequently, Health Canada has enabled the use of maltogenic α-amylase from this source as described in the information document below by modifying the List of Permitted Food Enzymes, effective June 09, 2023.
The purpose of this 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.
To obtain an electronic copy of the Notice of Modification to the List of Permitted Food Enzymes to Enable the Use of Maltogenic alpha-Amylase from Bacillus subtilis ROM in Bread, Flour, Whole Wheat Flour, and Unstandardized Bakery Products - Reference Number: NOM/ADM-0204, please contact our publications office or send an e-mail to email@example.com with the words "hpfb BCS nom-adm-0204-eng" in the subject line of your e-mail.
Health Canada's Food Directorate is committed to reviewing new scientific information on the safety in use of any permitted food additive. Anyone wishing to submit an inquiry or new scientific information on the use of a permitted additive may do so in writing, by regular mail or electronically. If you wish to contact the Food Directorate electronically about maltogenic α-amylase from Bacillus subtilis ROM, please use the words "maltogenic α-amylase (NOM-0204)" in the subject line of your e-mail.
