Sec. 184.1250 Cellulase enzyme preparation derived from Trichoderma
(a) Cellulase enzyme preparation is derived from a nonpathogenic,
nontoxicogenic strain of Trichoderma longibrachiatum (formerly T.
reesei). The enzyme, cellulase, catalyzes the endohydrolysis of 1,4-
beta-glycosidic linkages in cellulose. It is obtained from the culture
filtrate resulting from a pure culture fermentation process.
(b) The ingredient meets the general and additional requirements for
enzyme preparations in the monograph specifications on enzyme
preparations in the ``Food Chemicals Codex,'' 4th ed. (1996), pp. 129 to
134, which is incorporated by reference in accordance with 5 U.S.C.
552(a) and 1 CFR part 51. Copies are available from the National Academy
