The Enzyme Technical Association (ETA) recently contributed an article titled “The Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) Process for Industrial Microbial Enzymes” to Industrial Biotechnology, a peer-reviewed journal that provides news on bio-based industries. The article discusses the process for how the GRAS designation is determined for industrial microbial enzymes. GRAS is a regulatory designation by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that exempts a food substance from FDA premarket review if it is commonly known throughout the scientific community as safe under the conditions of its intended use. The article also discusses how the GRAS designation is particularly well suited for industrial microbial enzymes, which have a long history of safe use in food processing and animal feed.
