Health Canada modifies the list of permitted food enzymes


Nov 03, 2021

Health Canada's Food Directorate completed a premarket safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking approval for the use of glutaminase from Bacillus licheniformis SJ13263 in bread; dairy-based flavouring preparation; flour; hydrolyzed animal, milk and vegetable protein; pasta; unstandardized bakery products; whole wheat flour; and yeast.

Glutaminase from another microbial source is already permitted for use in certain foods requested by the petitioner. Although B. licheniformis and numerous other strains of this bacterium are permitted sources for several food enzymes other than glutaminase in Canada, B. licheniformis SJ13263 was not already a permitted source for any food enzyme.
