Health Canada's notifies modification to the list of permitted food additives


May 31, 2021

Health Canada's Food Directorate completed a premarket safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking approval for the use of sodium phosphate, tribasic, to reduce processing losses and thaw drip in frozen shrimp and frozen cooked shrimp.

The results of the premarket assessment support the safety of sodium phosphate, tribasic, for its requested use and its efficacy for such use when used in combination with other phosphates permitted for the same purpose. Consequently, Health Canada has enabled the use of sodium phosphate, tribasic described in the information document below by modifying the List of Permitted Food Additives with Other Accepted Uses effective April 28, 2021.
