Food Standards Australian New Zealand (FSANZ) has 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 that xylanase is naturally present in many cereals, and the applicant is seeking to use the processing aid to improve the effectiveness of manufacturing bakery and other cereal-based products.

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

The closing date for submissions is 6 March 2017.
