Safety assessment and regulation of food enzymes

Mar 03, 2021

Safety assessment requirements for food enzymes are complicated by differences in global regulations. This includes differences in the conditions under which premarket approval is required, and differences in sensitivities to perceived risks of the use of biotechnology in developing new enzyme products, resulting in discrepancies in the type of safety data manufacturers must provide. Additional research and data into the etiology of how enzymes act as respiratory allergens are also needed to differentiate between nonallergenic/weakly allergenic enzymes and those moderate/strongly allergenic enzymes via the respiratory route of exposure.
