Notice of Modification to the List of Permitted Food Enzymes to Enable the Use of Lipase from Trichoderma reesei RF10625 in Bread, Flour, Whole Wheat Flour and Unstandardized Bakery Products - Reference Number: NOM/ADM-0123 [2022-09-26]
Health Canada's Food Directorate completed a detailed safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking approval for the use of lipase from Trichoderma reesei RF10625 in bread, flour, whole wheat flour and unstandardized bakery products.
Lipase from other source organisms is already permitted for use in Canada as a food enzyme in the same foods as those requested by the petitioner.
As no safety concerns were identified through Health Canada’s assessment, the Department has enabled the use of the food additive lipase from T. reesei RF10625, as described in the information document below, by modifying the List of Permitted Food Enzymes, effective September 6, 2018.
The purpose of this communication is to publically announce Health Canada's decision in this regard and to provide the appropriate contact information for inquiries or for submitting 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 Lipase from Trichoderma reesei RF10625 in Bread, Flour, Whole Wheat Flour and Unstandardized Bakery Products - Reference Number: NOM/ADM-0123, please contact our publications office or send an e-mail to [email protected] with the subject heading "hpfb BCS nom-adm-0123-eng".
Health Canada's Food Directorate is committed to reviewing any new scientific information on the safety in use of any food additive, including lipase from T. reeseiRF10625.
