FEMA GRASTM

Generally Recognized As Safe

The Expert Panel of FEMA is the primary body for the safety evaluation of food flavoring for the flavor industry and the public through its "generally recognized as safe" (GRAS) assessment of flavoring substances. FEMA GRAS is the most widely recognized and admired industry GRAS assessment program.
