Sec.  184.1660  Propyl gallate.

    (a) Propyl gallate is the n-propylester of 3,4,5-trihydroxybenzoic 
acid (C10H12O5). Natural occurrence of 
propyl gallate has not been reported. It is commercially prepared by 
esterification of gallic acid with propyl alcohol followed by 
distillation to remove excess alcohol.
    (b) The ingredient meets the specifications of the ``Food Chemicals 
Codex,'' 3d Ed. (1981), pp. 257-258, which is incorporated by reference.

170.3(o)(3) of this chapter.
    (d) The ingredient is used in food at levels not to exceed good 
manufacturing practice in accordance with Sec.  184.1(b)(1). Good

essential (volatile) oil content, of the food.
    (e) Prior sanctions for this ingredient different from the uses 
established in this section, or different from that stated in part 181
