Beta-amylase from soybean (Glycine max) as a processing aid (enzyme) - 7 Dec 2020
Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia (A&AA) made a submission to Food Standards Australia New Zealand re: Application A1204 - Beta-amylase from soybean (Glycine max) as a processing aid (enzyme).
A&AA is not opposed to the application, but has issues and concerns which do not appear to have been fully addressed. The labelling obligation seem to be stated ambiguously and should be expressed more emphatically. The issues surrounding allergenicity, processing and digestion may need investigation in greater depth, and accordingly A&AA urges the referral of matters of allergenicity to the FSANZ Food Allergy and Intolerance Scientific Advisory Group of experts in allergic disease as a matter of routine.
