Sec.  184.1420  Lipase enzyme preparation derived from Rhizopus niveus.

    (a) Lipase enzyme preparation contains lipase enzyme (CAS Reg. No. 
9001-62-1), which is obtained from the culture filtrate resulting from a 
pure culture fermentation of a nonpathogenic and nontoxigenic strain of 
Rhizopus niveus. The enzyme preparation also contains diatomaceous earth 
as a carrier. The characterizing activity of the enzyme, which catalyzes 
the interesterification of fats and oils at the 1- and 3-positions of 
triglycerides, is triacylglycerol lipase (EC 3.1.1.3).
    (b) The ingredient meets the general requirements and additional 
requirements for enzyme preparations in the monograph on Enzyme 
Preparations in the ``Food Chemicals Codex,'' 4th ed. (1996), pp. 133 
and 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 
Press, 2101 Constitution Ave. NW., Washington, DC 20418, or may be 
examined at the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition's Library, 
5100 Paint Branch Pkwy., College Park, MD 20740, or at the National 
Archives and Records Administration (NARA). For information on the

regulations/ibr--locations.html.
    (c) In accordance with Sec.  184.1(b)(1), the ingredient is used in 
food with no limitation other than current good manufacturing practice. 
The affirmation of this ingredient as generally recognized as safe as a 
direct human food ingredient is based upon the following current good 
manufacturing practice conditions of use:
    (1) The ingredient is used as an enzyme as defined in Sec.  
170.3(o)(9) of this chapter for the interesterification of fats and 
oils.

    (2) The ingredient is used in food at levels not to exceed current 
good manufacturing practice.
