Modified vinegar (ICS Code: 67.220.20)
Notice of Health Canada's Proposal to Enable the Use of Modified Vinegar as a Preservative in Certain Meat and Poultry Products and Preparations - Reference Number: NOP/ADP-0036. Language(s): English and French. Number of pages: 6 and 7
Health Canada's Food Directorate completed a premarket safety assessment of modified vinegar for use as a preservative in the same meat and poultry products and preparations that are already permitted to be made with potassium acetate, potassium diacetate, sodium acetate and sodium diacetate. The results of the premarket assessment support the safety of modified vinegar for these uses. Consequently, Health Canada intends to enable the use of modified vinegar by modifying Part 2 of the List of Permitted Preservatives as described in the information document.
The purpose of this communication is to publically announce the Department's intention in this regard and to provide the appropriate contact information for any inquiries or for those wishing to submit new scientific information relevant to the safety of this food additive.
