Polydextrose approved for use in tablespreads

10/30/2000-The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is amending the food additive regulations to provide for the safe use of polydextrose as a bulking agent, texturizer, or both in tablespreads. This action is in response to a petition filed by Pfizer, Inc. In a notice published in the Federal Register of August 24, 1992 (57 FR 38311), FDA announced that a food additive petition (FAP 2A4332) had been filed by Pfizer, Inc., 235 East 42d St., New York, NY 10017-5755. Pfizer, Inc., subsequently announced the sale of the Pfizer Food Science Group and the transfer of the petition to Cultor Food Science, Inc., 430 Saw Mill River Rd., Ardsley, NY 10502. Recently, the petitioner announced a name change from Cultor Food Science, Inc., to Danisco Cultor America, Inc. (Danisco), to reflect the acquisition of the company by Danisco. The petition proposed to amend the food additive regulations in Sec. 172.841 Polydextrose (21 CFR 172.841) to provide for the safe use of polydextrose as a bulking agent. This rule is effective October 30, 2000. For more information, see the Federal Register of October 30, 2000 (Volume 65, Number 210).
