Health Canada's Food Directorate completed a detailed safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking approval for the use of L-lysine monohydrochloride in certain processed snack foods to inhibit acrylamide formation during their manufacture. The results of the Food Directorate's evaluation of available scientific data support the safety and efficacy of L-lysine monohydrochloride for its requested use.
