Name change for wine enzymes

Wednesday, 04 June, 2014


The Australian Wine Research Institute is applying to change the naming and classification of carboxyl proteinase enzymes to bring them into line with International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology classifications.

Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) is calling for submissions on the application.

“If the change is approved, enzyme carboxyl proteinase would be replaced with Aspergillopepsin I and Aspergillopepsin II in the processing aid standard in the code,” FSANZ Chief Executive Officer Steve McCutcheon said.

“FSANZ welcomes comments from government agencies, public health professionals, industry and the community on this application.”

The closing date for submissions is 15 July 2014.
