Phosphatidylserine derived from soy as a supplemental ingredient

Notice of proposal to enable the use of phosphatidylserine (soy) as a supplemental ingredient in foods.

Health Canada's Food Directorate has assessed phosphatidylserine for use as a supplemental ingredient. This is one of the ingredients the Food Directorate previously identified for further assessment since it was an ingredient that was present in product(s) that were previously eligible to transition to the food regulatory framework under Temporary Marketing Authorizations. The Food Directorate concluded that information related to the safety of phosphatidylserine derived from soy supports its safe use in supplemented foods provided levels of use do not exceed intakes of 300 mg per day, do not exceed 300 mg per serving, and that certain other compositional and labelling requirements are met; as set out in the information document. Consequently, Health Canada proposes to enable the use of phosphatidylserine (soy) by modifying the List of Permitted Supplemental Ingredients.
