Latest quality and purity specifications for food ingredients help protect consumers
Date:3/1/2010

Rockville, Md., March 1, 2010 New and updated quality standards for ingredients used in functional foods and a host of other food products manufactured, sold and consumed every day are included in the newly released seventh edition of the Food Chemicals Codex (FCC). Published by the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP), the FCC is an internationally recognized compendium of standards that helps ensure the identity, quality, purity and consistency of food ingredients.

"The food industry is very innovative and competitive, with new ingredients being introduced on a regular basis," said James Griffiths, Ph.D., vice president of food, dietary supplement and excipient standards for USP. "As new ingredients emerge, as pressures to keep food prices low continue, and as the globalization of the industry persists, ensuring quality can become very difficult. The Food Chemicals Codex is designed to serve as a resource for the food industry, offering independently developed, science-based standards defining the authenticity and quality of food ingredients that both suppliers and food manufacturers find useful. These standards provide suppliers with a means of demonstrating quality, and allow manufacturers to have confidence that the ingredients they purchase are what they claim to be, as opposed to a contaminated, adulterated, diluted or otherwise inferior product. The ultimate beneficiary, of course, is the consumer, who deserves a quality food product."

The latest FCC edition includes standards covering quality and purity for 1,100 food ingredients. These standards include the ingredient's chemical formula, structure and weight; function and definition; impurity limits; and packaging, storage and labeling information. In addition, FCC Seventh Edition includes validated methods in 11 appendixes with step-by-step guidance to analyze food ingredients and demonstrate their authenticity, quality and purity. These appendixes cover Enzyme Assays, Essential Oi
