Amendment to the list of permitted food enzymes  published


Aug 30, 2021

Health Canada's Food Directorate completed a premarket safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking approval for the use of lysophospholipase from Trichoderma reesei RF7206 in starch used in the production of dextrins, dextrose, fructose syrups and solids, glucose (glucose syrup), glucose solids (dried glucose syrup), or maltose. 

Lysophospholipase is a type of phospholipase. Phospholipase from other microbial sources is already permitted for use in Canada as a food enzyme in certain foods, but not in the production of sugars and dextrins from starch. In addition, T. reesei RF7206 was not already a permitted source for any food enzyme in Canada.
