Glucose Oxidase from Aspergillus niger J39; (ICS Codes: 67.200.20)

Notice of Modification to the List of Permitted Food Enzymes to Enable the Use of Glucose Oxidase from Aspergillus niger J39 in Various Foods - Reference Number: NOM/ADM-0142 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 glucose oxidase from Aspergillus niger J39 in bread, flour, whole wheat flour, pasta, unstandardized bakery products, and in certain shredded cheeses just prior to their packaging.

Glucose oxidase from other A. niger strains is already permitted for use in Canada as a food enzyme in the same foods as those of interest to the petitioner other than shredded cheese.

The results of the premarket assessment support the safety of glucose oxidase from ###i J39 for its requested uses and its efficacy for use in shredded cheeses (a new type of food for this food enzyme). Consequently, Health Canada has enabled the use of glucose oxidase from this source described in the information document by modifying the ###a href="List" class="redactor-linkify-object"> of Permitted Food Enzymes, effective 21 January 2020. 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.
