Technical Consultation on Health Canada's proposal to amend the Food and Drug Regulations to permit the use of calcium acid pyrophosphate in baking powder and unstandardized bakery products
Notice to the reader:
The online consultation is now closed.
As a result of this process, the proposal to permit the use of calcium acid pyrophosphate in standardized baking powder and unstandardized foods, including unstandardized bakery products was published in the Canada Gazette, Part II on June 6, 2012. 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 'calcium acid pyrophosphate', for use as a food additive in standardized baking powder and unstandardized foods, including unstandardized bakery products.
Since no safety concerns have been raised through this assessment, the department is proposing amendments to Division 16, Part B of the Regulations to enable the use described in the consultation document. The purpose of this communication is to seek comments on this proposed action.
