FSANZ Call for submission on Rosemary extract as a food additive – extension of use


Nov 21, 2023

Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) is calling for comment on Application A1254 – "Rosemary extract as a food additive – extension of use" which would amend the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code. The applicant also requested maximum permitted levels (MPLs) in relation to rosemary extract for each food. Rosemary extract (E392) is already a permitted food additive (antioxidant) in the Code for use  in certain foods up to specified MPLs.

The antioxidative function of rosemary extracts helps to stabilise product formulations thus providing longer shelf-life. Rosemary extracts are naturally derived extracts and thus provide a benefit to consumers seeking more ‘natural’ ingredients in their food products. Rosemary extract is approved as a food additive in several regions / countries including the EU, Japan, China, Vietnam, Brazil, and Singapore.
