食品伙伴网讯 2023年6月30日，欧盟食品安全局就食品酶凝乳酶和胃蛋白酶A（chymosin and pepsin A）的安全性评价发布意见。
The food enzyme containing chymosin (EC 22.214.171.124) and pepsin A (EC 126.96.36.199) is prepared from the abomasum of calves and cows (Bos taurus) by Chr. Hansen. The food enzyme is intended to be used in milk processing for cheese production and in milk processing for the production of fermented milk products. As no concerns arise from the animal source of the food enzyme, from its manufacture, and based on the history of safe use and consumption, the Panel considered that toxicological data were unnecessary and an estimation of dietary exposure was not required. A search for the similarity of the amino acid sequences of the two proteins (chymosin and pepsin A) to those of known allergens was made and one match with pig pepsin, a respiratory allergen, was found. The Panel considered that, under the intended conditions of use, the risk of allergic reactions upon dietary exposure cannot be excluded, but the likelihood is low. based on the data provided, the Panel concluded that this food enzyme does not give rise to safety concerns under the intended conditions of use.
