Lipase from Saccharomyces cerevisiae authorized for bakery use


Sep 18, 2023

Health Canada's Food Directorate completed a premarket safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking approval for the use of lipase from Saccharomyces cerevisiae LALL-LI in bread, flour, whole wheat flour and unstandardized bakery products.

Lipase from other sources is already permitted for use in Canada in the foods requested by the petitioner. However, prior to this Notice, the source organism, S. cerevisiae LALL-LI, was not a permitted source for any food enzyme in Canada.

The results of the premarket assessment support the safety of lipase from S. cerevisiae LALL-LI for its requested uses. Consequently, Health Canada has enabled the use of lipase from S. cerevisiae LALL-LI as described in the information document below by modifying the List of Permitted Food Enzymes, effective September 13, 2023.
