Health Canada’s Food Directorate completed a detailed premarket safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking approval for the use of long-chain glycolipids from Dacryopinax spathularia MUCL 53181 as a preservative in certain standardized and unstandardized non-alcoholic beverages. The results of the premarket assessment support the safety and efficacy of long-chain glycolipids from D. spathularia MUCL 53181 for its requested uses as antibacterial and antifungal/antimycotic agents.
