New and revised standards for omega-3s, natural sweeteners and other food ingredients proposed
Date:1/2/2013

CC proposal uses two new USP reference standards: Rebaudioside A and Steviol Glycosides System Suitability for identification and measurement of individual glycosides.

  • CaffeineAs part of ongoing efforts to keep FCC monographs current and reflective of the latest available analytical techniques, the revised monograph that is being offered for public comment includes a more discriminating liquid chromatography test for both identity and quantitative determination of the purity of caffeine content. For manufacturers and suppliers, the ability to properly identify and measure caffeine content will be more critical than ever given the broader use of the ingredient in products marketed to increase energy beyond traditional beverages such as soft drinks. With the potential for closer regulatory scrutiny of products high in caffeine content following alleged adverse events and consumer group petitions, companies will need to be confident that they know with greater precision what they are incorporating into their productsand in what quantity. The proposed new analytical method is based on an equivalent method specified in the Caffeine monograph published in USP 35NF 30, USP's compendia for pharmaceutical and excipient standards.

  • Gold and SilverWith the microscopic thin foil of gold and silver commonly used in confectionary products in South East Asian and Middle Eastern countries, the first food-grade gold and food-grade silver monographs are being proposed for FCC. Purity is especially important for these ingredients, given that gold and silver may mix with other metals in nature, and stringent controls to prevent the presence of various elemental impurities with potential toxicity are increasingly considered necessary or advisable.
