Partial List Of Enzyme Preparations That Are Used In Food Industry

Food ingredients may be "food additives" that are approved for specific uses or GRAS (generally recognized as safe) substances. A substance may be GRAS only if its general recognition of safety is based on the views of experts qualified to evaluate the safety of the substance. GRAS status may be based either on a history of safe use in food prior to 1958 or on scientific procedures, which require the same quantity and quality of evidence as would be required to obtain a food additive regulation.

The following list,includes approved food additives and substances.This list includes some ingredients which have been the subject of opinion letters to individuals who asked whether object to the use of the ingredient in food on the basis of an independent GRAS determination. In addition, enzyme preparations may be the subject of a GRAS notice.              

The following is a compilation of enzymes listed as food additives and is a compilation of enzymes that have been specified or un specified food uses and predicated on the use of nontoxicogenic strains of the respective organism and on the use of current good manufacturing practise.Please be awera that all food ingredients has not been considered.Therefore,this does not represent a complete list of all enzymes for some uses.
