You won't really find any "standard".  When I was in flavors we based on our hazard assessment on the chemicals meeting the USP requirements.




The micro hazard, for the most part, is non-existent with flavor chemicals.  You may have a micro hazard with some natural flavors, juice extract types and what not, but very rare.

There are no references that I am aware of regarding microbiological risks associated with flavors.  Generally, if a compounded flavor contains 20% or more of ethanol or propylene glycol, it is not a microbial risk.  Individual flavor chemicals, or concentrated flavors containing all chemicals (no water, juice, botanical, etc.) is also not generally a risk.  


The Society of Flavor Chemists (I am a member) has a public LinkedIn group you can join if you would like to ask flavor-specific questions.
