EFSA has established a safe intake level for glutamates

European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has published a scientific opinion about glutamic acid’s safety.

EFSA’s experts recommend reviewing the maximum permitted levels for these food additives. Moreover, the Authority has established a safe intake level for glutamic acid and glutamates used as food additives after re-evaluating their safety.

In the EU the addition of glutamates is generally permitted up to a maximum level of 10 g/kg of food. In salt substitutes, seasonings and condiments, there is no numerical maximum permitted level for glutamates. EFSA re-assessed the safety of glutamates used as food additives and derived a group acceptable daily intake (ADI) of 30 mg/kg body weight per day, a threshold that may be exceeded especially for children.

Generon offers the opportunity to satisfy these indications thanks to “Glutamate food ELISA kit for glutamates quantification in food samples.
