Notice of Modification to the List of Permitted Food Enzymes to Enable the Use of Pectinase from Aspergillus niger in Unstandardized Fruit and Vegetable Products


Feb 04, 2021

Health Canada's Food Directorate completed a premarket safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking approval for the use of pectinase from Aspergillus niger in unstandardized fruit and vegetable products.

Pectinase from A. niger is already permitted for use in Canada as a food enzyme in several foods, including certain unstandardized fruit and vegetable products at a level consistent with Good Manufacturing Practice. Pectinase from sources other than A. niger is also permitted for such use in all unstandardized fruit and vegetable products but pectinase from A. niger is not permitted more broadly in this same manner.
