I recently moved to an extract and flavoring manufacturer and have no previous experience with this sector of the industry. I am having a hard time determining how to classify tree bark to determine hazards and supplier/ingredient requirements. I have been through the FDA's Guidance docs and i don't think it really falls under spices, nuts, or food additives - though of course the finished product falls nicely under the food additive category.
Does anyone have experience/knowledge that they would be willing to share?
thanks in advance,
