「Japan’s Specifications and Standards for Food Additives (JSSFA)」は、食品添加物公定書を英訳したものです。
Safety evaluation of existing natural food additives in Japan
These additives had been listed by the Ministry of Health and Welfare on April 16, 1996, and then the items which is not available in the food additive merket or have harmful effects were eliminated fron the list. As of January 30, 2014, the list involves 365 items that are permitted to use as natural food additives in Japan without applying the designation system of which the details are discribed by Ministry of Health, labour and Welfare. Hence, unlike additives that have been evaluated the safety through the designation system, the natural food additives included in the list of existing additives have not been individually checked for safety. Accordingly, the Japanese Diet, etc. have requested the confirmation of their safety.
