Sec.  184.1287  Enzyme-modified fats.

    (a) Enzyme-modified refined beef fat, enzyme-modified butterfat, and 
enzyme-modified steam-rendered chicken fat are prepared from refined 
beef fat; butterfat or milkfat; and steam-rendered chicken fat, 
respectively, with enzymes that are generally recognized as safe (GRAS). 
Enzyme-modified milk powder may be prepared with GRAS enzymes from 
reconstituted milk powder, whole milk, condensed or concentrated whole 
milk, evaporated milk, or milk powder. The lipolysis is maintained at a 
temperature that is optimal for the action of the enzyme until 
appropriate acid development is attained. The enzymes are then 
inactivated. The resulting product is concentrated or dried.
    (b) FDA is developing food-grade specifications for these enzyme-
modified ingredients in cooperation with the National Academy of 
Sciences. In the interim, the ingredients must be of purity suitable for 
their intended use.
    (c) In accordance with Sec.  184.1(b)(1), the ingredients are used 
in food with no limitation other than current good manufacturing 
practice. The affirmation of these ingredients as generally recognized 
as safe (GRAS) as direct human food ingredients is based upon the 
following current good manufacturing practice conditions of use:
    (1) The ingredients are used as flavoring agents and adjuvants as 
defined in Sec.  170.3(o)(12) of this chapter.
    (2) The ingredients are used in food at levels not to exceed current 
good manufacturing practice.
    (d) Prior sanctions for these ingredients different from the uses 
established in this section do not exist or have been waived.
