Lipase from Trichoderma reesei Morph Lip3 (ICS Code: 67.060)
Notice of Modification to the List of Permitted Food Enzymes to Enable the Use of Lipase from Trichoderma reesei Morph Lip3 in Bread, Flour, Whole Wheat Flour, Unstandardized Bakery Products, and Pasta - Reference Number: NOM/ADM-0134. Language(s): English and French. Number of pages: 4
Health Canada's Food Directorate completed a premarket safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking approval for the use of lipase from Trichoderma reesei Morph Lip3 in bread, flour, whole wheat flour, unstandardized bakery products, and pasta.
Lipase from other source organisms is already permitted for use in Canada as a food enzyme in a number of foods including those of interest to the petitioner.
The results of the premarket assessment support the safety and efficacy of lipase from T. reesei Morph Lip3 for its requested uses. Consequently, Health Canada has enabled the use of lipase from T. reesei Morph Lip3 described in the information document below by modifying the List of Permitted Food Enzymes (https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/food-nutrition/food-safety/food-additives/lists-permitted/5-enzymes.html), effective 27 June 2019. The purpose of this communication is to publically announce the Department's decision in this regard and to provide the appropriate contact information for any inquiries or for those wishing to submit any new scientific information relevant to the safety of this food additive.
