This article compares the differences between new food raw material registration and new food additive registration. In addition to fully considering the actual use of this substance, enterprises who want to carry out the application should also pay attention to the detailed registration requirements of them.
In the actual production of food, if a food substance has not been approved in China, it’s necessary to submit related safety assessment materials of this substance to National Health Commission of the People's Republic of China (NHC) for registration. At present, there are two registration types for "food substance", namely, new food raw material (novel food) registration and new food additive registration. In this article, CIRS will discuss the similarities between these two applications.
