Safety Evaluation Of Certain Food Additives And Contaminants
This volume evaluates the design and findings of studies relevant to the safety assessment of selected food additives and contaminants. The text is part of a long-running series prepared by the joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JEFCA). It provides toxicologists, the food industry, and regulatory agencies with a record of scientific evidence considered when the Committee allocates or revises acceptable daily intakes and other endpoints.
This volume contains monographs prepared at the seventy-seventh meeting of the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), which met in Rome, Italy, from 4 to 13 June 2013. The toxicological monographs in this volume summarise the safety data on three food additives: advantame, glucoamylase from Trichoderma reesei expressed in Trichoderma reesei and nisin.
This volume contains monographs prepared at the sixty-eighth meeting of the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), which met in Geneva Switzerland from 19 to 28 June 2007. The toxicological monographs in this volume summarize the safety data on a number of food additives: acidified sodium chlorite asparaginase from Aspergillus oryzae expressed in Aspergillus oryzae carrageenan and processed Euchema seaweed cyclotetraglucose and cyclotetraglucose syrup isoamylase from Pseudomonas amyloderamosa magnesium sulfate phospholipase A1 from Fusarium venenatum expressed in Aspergillus oryzae sodium iron(III) ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) and steviol glycosides.
The toxicological monographs in this volume summarize the safety data on two contaminants in food: cadmium and lead. Monographs on nine groups of related flavouring agents evaluated by the Procedure for the Safety Evaluation of Flavouring Agents are also included. This volume and others in the WHO Food Additives series contain information that is useful to those who produce and use food additives and veterinary drugs and those involved with controlling contaminants in food, government and food regulatory officers, industrial testing laboratories, toxicological laboratories and universities
The toxicological monographs in this volume summarize the safety data on a number of food additives: aluminium containing food additives, Benzoe Tonkinensis, Ponceau 4R, pullulanase from Bacillus deramificans expressed in Bacillus licheniformis, Quinoline Yellow and Sunset Yellow FCF.This volume also contains monographs summarizing the toxicological and dietary exposure data for the contaminants cyanogenic glycosides and fumonisins.
