Bioexx Says Canola Protein Has Self-Affirmed GRAS Status

Canada’s Bioexx has announced it has that it has completed the
self-affirmation process to qualify its specialty canola protein isolate Isolexx
as self-affirmed GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) for use in baked goods and
other food products.

GRAS is a food safety standard, set and administered in accordance with the
regulations of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which governs the use
of additives in foods and beverages.

Self affirmed GRAS status, said the company, is a critical requirement to be
able to sell its product in the initial target market of the US, and it was
obtained through a review of both the manufacturing process and the resulting
chemical profile of Isolexx by independent and qualified experts in the fields
of toxicology and allergenicity.
