Technical Consultation on Health Canada's Proposal to Enable the Use of the Food Additive 'Hexose Oxidase' in mozzarella cheese, ultra-heat treated milk, and dough for bread products
Notice to the reader:
The online consultation is now closed.
As a result of this process, a modification was made to the List of Permitted Food Enzymes to enable the use of hexose oxidase from hansenula polymorpha (B13-HOX4-Mut45) as a food enzyme in certain cheese, bakery and milk products on June 4, 2013. The proposed use of this food additive in Canada as described is now enabled.
Health Canada's Food Directorate has recently completed a detailed safety assessment of the food additive hexose oxidase in pizza mozzarella cheese, part-skim pizza mozzarella cheese, ultra-heat treated milk, and dough for bread, baking and pasta.
Since no safety concerns have been raised through this assessment, the department is proposing to enable the use of this food additive as described in the information document below. The purpose of this communication is to seek comments on this proposed action.
