Cleaners, lubricants, disinfectants, sanitizers, water treatment compounds etc). Non-Food Chemicals should not to be confused with food additives i.e.. FDA food additive means any substance the use of which results, or may reasonably be expected to result, in it or its byproduct becoming a part of or affecting the characteristics of a food

Evaluation Protocol for NonFood Chemicals Evaluation of Non-Food Chemicals The complete chemical composition of the product, listing all ingredients by percentage or quantitatively ( all components shall

be identified chemically) a copy of a draft label Note: submission forms can be obtained off our web site at Evaluation of Non-Food Chemicals

Once the review is completed and chemical product is found acceptable for its intended use in a food plant, a letter of acceptance is issued to the applicant, based on the acceptability of the chemical composition and label of the product. The accepted product and the firms name is then entered on our web site. (
