The European Food Safety Authority

July 1, 2008

The EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) has issued a positive opinion on four more bisglycinate chelates from Albion, Saint Clair Shores, MI: calcium, magnesium zinc and copper. The Panel on Food Additives, Flavourings, Processing Aids and Materials in Contact with Food (AFC) concluded that calcium bisglycinate and magnesium bisglycinate, as sources for calcium and magnesium respectively, are not a safety concern when added to foods or food supplements for nutritional purposes. Likewise, the panel found that zinc bisglycinate chelate was not a safety concern when used as a source of zinc in foods intended for the general population; in foods for particular nutritional purposes; or in food supplements. Copper bisglycinate was also not a safety concern as a source of copper added for nutritional purposes to food supplements.
