FSANZ: Call for submissions on new enzyme processing aid

Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ)  yesterday called for submissions on an application to permit the use of an enzyme (endo β(1,4) xylanase) as a processing aid.

FSANZ Chief Executive Officer Steve McCutcheon said the applicant was seeking to use the processing aid to manufacture some cereal products.

“FSANZ has undertaken a risk assessment and concluded there are no public health and safety concerns relating to this enzyme,” Mr McCutcheon said.

“Xylanase is naturally present in many cereals. The applicant is seeking to add this enzyme to improve the effectiveness of manufacturing bakery and other cereal-based products.”

The closing date for submissions is 6 March 2016.
