Notice - Notification of WTO Members: Notice of Modification to the List of Permitted Food Enzymes to Enable the Use of Transglutaminase from Streptomyces mobaraensis M2020197 in Various Foods
||Notice of Modification to the List of Permitted Food Enzymes to Enable the Use of Transglutaminase from Streptomyces mobaraensis M2020197 in Various Foods
Health Canada's Food Directorate completed a premarket safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking authorization for the use of transglutaminase from Streptomyces mobaraensis M2020197 in various foods.
Transglutaminase from another source is already permitted for use in Canada in a number of the foods requested by the petitioner. Prior to this Notice, S. mobaraensis M2020197 was not a permitted source for any food enzyme in Canada.
The results of the premarket assessment support the safety of transglutaminase from S. mobaraensis M2020197 for its requested uses. Consequently, Health Canada has enabled the use of transglutaminase from this source as described in the information document by modifying the List of Permitted Food Enzymes, effective 2 March 2023.
The purpose of this information document is to publicly announce the Department's decision in this regard and to provide the appropriate contact information for those wishing to submit an inquiry or new scientific information relevant to the safety of this food additive.
