Consistent with a long history of protecting trade secrets of members, FEMA secured amendments to the New Jersey Right to Know law, ensuring the return of more than 50,000 proprietary flavor formulas.
The Flavor Ingredient Library provides information on ingredients that have been determined to be generally recognized as safe under conditions of intended use as flavor ingredients by the FEMA Expert Panel. The identity of all FEMA GRAS flavor ingredients and the safety information supporting FEMA GRAS status have been submitted by FEMA to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The Library also provides the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) safety evaluation (as applicable).
