Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) Compliance Guide on the Determination of Processing Aids

Document ID: FSIS-GD-2008-0003
Date of Issuance: April 8, 2008

 

This guidance document conveys to official establishments FSIS’s approach to determining whether an ingredient may be considered a processing aid. The Federal meat and poultry inspection regulations do not define “processing aid.” FSIS evaluates whether a substance is a processing aid, using the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) definition of this term, which is in 21 CFR 101.100(a)(3).
