FSANZ: Call for submissions on wine processing aids

Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) has called for submissions on an application to permit the use of four new processing aids in wine.

FSANZ Chief Executive Officer Mark Booth said the processing aids—chitin-glucan, PVI/PVP co-polymers, ammonium hydrogen sulphite and silver chloride—are already permitted for use in the European Union.

“These processing aids are used for various processes including as fining agents and to reduce odours that occur during storage,” Mr Booth said.

“FSANZ concluded there were no public health and safety concerns relating to the use of the processing aids in wine.”

All FSANZ decisions on applications are notified to ministers responsible for food regulation who can decide to ask for a review or agree that the standard should become law.

The closing date for submissions is 6pm (C​​​anberra time) 7 June 2017.
