Abstract

The monographs contained in this volume were prepared at the eighty-fourth meeting of the Joint Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO)/World Health Organization (WHO) Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), which met at FAO headquarters in Rome, Italy, on 6–15 June 2017. These monographs summarize the data on selected food additives reviewed by the Committee. The eighty-fourth report of JECFA has been published by WHO as WHO Technical Report No. 1007. Reports and other documents resulting from previous meetings of JECFA are listed in Annex 1. The participants in the meeting are listed in Annex 3 of the present publication. A summary of the conclusions of the Committee with respect to the food additives discussed at the meeting is given in Annex 4. JECFA serves as a scientific advisory body to FAO, WHO, their Member States and the Codex Alimentarius Commission, primarily through the Codex Committee on Food Additives, the Codex Committee on Contaminants in Food and the Codex Committee on Residues of Veterinary Drugs in Foods, regarding the safety of food additives, residues of veterinary drugs, naturally occurring toxicants and contaminants in food. Committees accomplish this task by preparing reports of their meetings and publishing specifications or residue monographs and dietary exposure and toxicological monographs, such as those contained in this volume, on substances that they have considered. The monographs contained in this volume are based on working papers that were prepared by WHO and FAO experts. A special acknowledgement is given at the beginning of each monograph to those who prepared these working papers. The monographs were edited by J. Odrowaz, Toronto, Canada. These monographs were prepared based on the evaluation of the original studies and the dossier provided by the sponsor(s) of the compound, of the relevant published scientific literature and of the data submitted by Codex members. When found consistent with the data of the original study, the monographs may contain parts of the text and tables of the dossier submitted by the sponsor(s), but not the sponsor(s)’ conclusions.
