I would like to gather the thoughts on the above after a discussion with a Technical Manager for a retailer.
I was under the impression that Ethanol, when used to increase shelf-life of a product, is considered and additive and therefore should be declared on BOP. However, a Technical Manager for a retailer tells me it isn't required to be declared.
What is your take on this? Is the Ethanol a processing aid and therefore not required to be declared, or is it an additive and must be declared?
For information, this is Ethanol that is applied to a finished product immediately prior to being packaged, it is not a part of the mix.
