MPC NOT GRAS
(click on Image to Enlarge)
The GAO has recently released a report titled "FDA Should Strengthen Its Oversight of Food Ingredients Determined to Be Generally Recognized
as Safe (GRAS)." The report is available at: http://www.gao.gov/new.items/d10246.pdf
Of particular interest is the list on the above page which clearly indicates, in the lead position, MPCs are not GRAS and should not be in food.
