Notice of Modification to the List of Permitted Preservatives to Enable the Use of Tocopherols in Dehydrated Fish Broth and Dehydrated Mollusc Broth - Reference Number: NOM/ADM-0136. Language(s): English and French. Number of pages: 3 and 4
Health Canada's Food Directorate completed a premarket safety assessment of a food additive submission seeking approval for the use of tocopherols in dehydrated fish broth and dehydrated mollusc broth.
The use of tocopherols as an antioxidant is already permitted in Canada in several foods, including in frozen fish fillets and frozen prepared fish fillets.
The results of the premarket assessment support the safety of tocopherols for its requested uses. Consequently, Health Canada has enabled the use of tocopherols described in the information document below by modifying Part 4 of the List of Permitted Preservatives, effective 8 August 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.
