Is N-Phenylbenzamide banned by EU using in fruit and vegetable product

N-Phenylbenzamide EU fruit and vegetable products

Best Answer Charles.C, 10 November 2016 - 03:12 AM

Hi xugang,

 

Below is from a little searching on the net regarding EC legislation.

 

This EC summary addresses the general topic of food safety with respect to chemicals -

 

http://ec.europa.eu/...mical_safety_en

 

The legislation applied seems to primarily derive from Regulation(EC) No396/2005.

 

The page linked below gives links to specific legislation on pesticides. The left (expandable) menu offers sub-details for pesticides +  other categories as mentioned in 1st link above -

 

http://77.245.87.41/...US/Default.aspx

 

The MRL (maximum residue levels) sub-topic eventually yields a pdf attached below with lists of food categories (inc.fruit/vegs) vs specific controlled chemical MRLs.

 

The compilation program is on-going via Annexes 1-7. As I understand, the scope of the choice of  controlled chemicals is risk-based.

 

The 2 chemical names N-phenylbenzamide / benzanilide  seem totally absent from a pdf search.

 

 

PS - note that the 2nd URL above gives links to 2 databases. Neither link yielded a database for me.

 

PPS - I presume that it is also possible that the chemical of interest may occur within other categories, eg "contaminants".

 

P3S - it is unclear to me as to the consequence of a "random" detection of a ("suspicious"?) chemical residue not in any of  the various official list(s) of regulated items. Maybe there is a caveat added somewhere in the "fine" print.

 

I suggest that if you have no evidence that the residues of an insecticide X are associated with a specified tolerance, the operative MRL be (provisionally) set at zero (ie not detectable). This is the Precautionary Principle.

Hi~everybody,

 

Today I read about a term" N-Phenylbenzamide".  What's the difference between " N-Phenylbenzamide" and "benzoyl"?

 

Has it banned by EU in fruit and vegetable products nowadays? If yes,  when?

 

What about regulations about N-Phenylbenzamide in other countries, such as the US, Canada, Japan and so on?  

 

 

I am looking forwad to your answers and help.

Hi xugang,

 

This compound appears to have at least 30 “synonyms” –

Attached File  BENZANILIDE _ C13H11NO - PubChem.pdf   105.02KB   7 downloads

 

the list of currently “approved” EC additives is, afaik, below –

Attached File  CELEX_02008R1333-20160525_EN_TXT.pdf   4.01MB   12 downloads

 

The 2, seemingly, most common synonyms (N-phenylbenzamide, Benzanilide) do not appear in 2nd pdf. Perhaps you can test the remaining 10-12 chemical synonyms yourself. :smile:

 

Note – I found up-to-date EC lists are elusive. I do not 100% guarantee the above one (ca consolidated 2016). The EC database wud not work with me.

 

I suspect other countries may be equally complicated.


Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C

Hello Charles.
Thank you very much.Your reply is really appreciated. But I still have a question:It seems that N-phenylbenzamide is not a direct food additive in the situation that I came across but often used as a material of pesticide of fruits and vegetables. So I don't know if it banned by EU as a material of pesticide of fruits and vegetables now.

I looked a lot of websites but still can not find related information. So I came here for help.

THANK YOU and waiting for your reply.

Hi xugang,

 

Sorry, i don't know either. It may be explained in the detailed text relating to my attachment in Post 2.
