Sec.  184.1553  Peptones.

    (a) Peptones are a variable mixture of polypeptides, oligopeptides, 
and amino acids that are produced by partial hydrolysis of casein, 
animal tissue, soy protein isolate, gelatin, defatted fatty tissue, egg 
albumin, or lactalbumin (whey protein). Peptones are produced from these 
proteins using proteolytic enzymes that either are considered to be 
generally recognized as safe (GRAS) or are regulated as food additives. 
Peptones are also produced by denaturing any of the proteins listed in 
this paragraph with safe and suitable acids or heat.
    (b) FDA is developing food-grade specifications for peptones in 
cooperation with the National Academy of Sciences. In the interim, these 
ingredients must be of a purity suitable for their intended use.
    (c) In accordance with Sec.  184.1(b)(1), these ingredients are used 
in food with no limitation other than current good manufacturing 
practice. The affirmation of these ingredients as GRAS as direct human 
food ingredients is based upon the following current good manufacturing 
practice conditions of use:
    (1) These ingredients are used as nutrient supplements as defined in 
Sec.  170.3(o)(20) of this chapter; as processing aids as defined in 
Sec.  170.3(o)(24) of this chapter; and as surface-active agents as 
defined in Sec.  170.3(o)(29) of this chapter.
    (2) These 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.
