Novel Food Notification

When introducing a new food ingredient that falls under one of the 15 Food Function Categories but is not currently regulated in the Food and Drug Regulations, a novel food additive application is required.

This includes food additives that are completely new and have never been used before, as well as existing food additives that will be used differently, i.e. in a different food, or at levels higher than the current maximum level of use. In these cases a novel food additive submission is also required. Quality Smart Solutions has the expertise needed to prepare your novel food additive application.
