Hi Everyone, 

 

I am reviewing ingredient declarations and have a question regarding water. 

 

Does this need to be listed as an ingredient in Canada? Is it only if there is certain percentage going into the product?

 

Any insight or direction to legislation would be greatly appreciated.

Not sure what you produce, but water is listed as an ingredient in our HACCP product listing.  And when I read the list of ingredients on other products, they generally list water if its added.  We see it as a biological and chemical risk, and have monthly water testing completed and receive emergency responses from our city when water turbidity goes out of spec.  As we use City Water it is very low risk for our area. But we do address it.

Yes, water is definitely listed in the ingredient statement as it's an ingredient. We make some products containing water for big retail chain, having very strict standards and being completely compliant to regulatory requirements - and we state water on the ingredient list.
