I am currently reviewing our HACCP plan to meet the FSSC 22000 requirement. I work at a cookie and cracker manufacturing plant,we did a FSSC 22000 GAP audit.
We use vegetable oil on the web (conveyor carrying biscuits) to prevent the dough from sticking to the web.
The auditor who is from our group of companies stated that this this be listed as a processing aid in the production, however i am not sure if this should be classified as a processing aid.
I would appreciate your feedback on this, would oiling of the web be considered a processing aid?
