Amendment to change name of Aspergillus Fijiensis to Aspergillus niger


Mar 23, 2022

Draft amendment for update the current microbial source name, for the enzyme β-fructofuranosidase, listed in subsection S18—4(5) of Schedule 18 in the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code (the Code), from Aspergillus niger to include and add the more recently identified name of Aspergillus fijiensis. The Code was amended in 2013 by FSANZ following the submission of Application A1055 to permit the addition of short chain fructooligosaccharides (FOS) sucrose to infant formula products, foods for infants and supplementary formulated foods for young children.
