Hello, I need some help with understanding the CDN regulations please. We are a tofu manufacturer. We are using a defoaming agent which we have classified as a food additive (not a processing aid) because we are adding it directly into the soy extract which coagulates into the final product (present in the finished product). This defoaming agent consists of soybean oil, silicon dioxide, sunflower lecithin, carnauba wax and mixed tocopherols. If I am looking at the components separately, the silicon dioxide, lecithin, and carnauba wax is not included in the list as a permitted food additive to be used in tofu (unstandardized foods). <https://www.canada.c...epted-uses.html>
Does this mean, that this defoaming agent is not allowed to be used in tofu products when classified as a food additive? (I would think it is not allowed; but if allowed, how would you label this?) And is it correct to say that the only way to use this defoaming agent is when we use it in the context that we can classify it as a processing aid?
Thanks very much in advance.
