Health Canadaâs Food Directorate is working to modify the Lists of Permitted Additives to reflect the use of certain food additives in standardized flavours, extracts and essences. Therefore, the Food Directorate is seeking assistance in gathering information that will be useful to complete this work.
Flavouring preparations subject to the compositional standards for extract or essence and flavour may contain a food colour and a Class II or Class IV preservative, as well as an emulsifying agent in the case of flavour.
The provisions in these standards are not reflected in the List of Permitted Colouring Agents, the List of Permitted Emulsifying, Gelling, Stabilizing or Thickening Agents, or the List of Permitted Preservatives.
