USP Releases Food Chemicals Codex

ROCKVILLE, Md.—U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP.org) announced the release of the latest edition of the Food Chemicals Codex, a compendium that sets standards for the identity, quality and purity of ingredients found in foods consumed by the public every day, including colorings, flavorings, nutrients, preservatives and processing aids.

“With the increasing globalization of the food supply, the availability of pure and safe foods is more important than ever,” said Darrell Abernethy, M.D., Ph.D., chief science officer for USP. “This latest edition of the Food Chemicals Codex will help assure that food ingredients are meeting high standards of quality for public consumption, just as USP has done with pharmaceutical products for close to 200 years.” 

A new edition will be published every two years, with an annual supplement between editions.
