Modification to the lists of permitted food additives to extend the use of certain food additives to human milk fortifier


May 04, 2021

Health Canada's Food Directorate completed safety assessments of carrageenan, gellan gum, lecithin, monoglycerides, potassium citrate, potassium hydroxide, and sodium citrate for use in human milk fortifier (HMF).

The results of these assessments support the safety of these food additives for use in HMF. Consequently, Health Canada has enabled their use as described in the information document below by modifying the List of Permitted Emulsifying, Gelling, Stabilizing or Thickening Agents and the List of Permitted pH Adjusting Agents, Acid-Reacting Materials and Water Correcting Agents, effective April 14, 2021.
