The Flavor and Extract Manufacturers Association (FEMA) has launched GRAS 24 online (www. femaflavor.org), featuring materials 4430 through 4666. The publication also includes updated average use levels and average maximum use levels for citral (FEMA# 2303), parsley oil (FEMA# 2836), jambu oleoresin (FEMA# 3783), N-gluconyl ethanolamine (FEMA# 4254), N-lactoyl ethanolamine (FEMA# 4256) and cis-3-nonen-1-ol (FEMA# 4412). The list’s publication comes on the heels of the organization’s symposium celebrating 50 years of the GRAS process, which provided an opportunity for the industry to reflect on the safety assessment of flavor materials.
