Example text

This system allows EFSA to dispense with most safety deliberations and frees resources to focus specifically on aspects of a given microorganism that deviate from the organism’s QPS counterpart. This deviation might be of a genetic or metabolic nature, or in its use. The US GRAS system is touched upon immediately below, and both the EU and US systems are described in greater detail in the next chapter (von Wright, Chapter 3, this volume). 4 US law and beneficial microorganisms In the USA, food for humans and feed for animals are both termed food and are both regulated in accordance with the Federal Food and Cosmetics Act (US FDA, 1999).

So far, these recommendations have not led to any specific EU-wide harmonization of the national regulations. In view of recent developments, food cultures might be eventually classified as food ingredients, as pointed out by Wessels (Chapter 2, this volume). While the situation with microbial cultures intended for food use currently is obscure in the EU, the case of microbial products intended for animals is very definite. These are unequivocally considered as feed additives, and this definition also covers the starters used for silage preparation.
