Abstract

The Panel on Food Contact Materials, Enzymes, Flavourings and Processing Aids of the European Food Safety Authority was requested to evaluate the genotoxic potential of 24 flavouring substances from subgroup 2.6 of FGE.19 in the Flavouring Group Evaluation 212, Revision 2. The Panel concluded in FGE.212, that the genotoxic potential could be ruled out for d-carvone [FL-no: 07.146] together with the structurally related l-carvone [FL-no: 07.147] as well as carveol and the carvyl derivatives [FL-no: 02.062, 09.143, 09.215 and 09.870]. Based on available genotoxicity data and new submitted genotoxicity data from the Industry, the Panel concluded that the genotoxic potential could be ruled out for the 11 isophorone derivatives [FL-no: 02.083, 02.101, 07.035, 07.098, 07.126, 07.129, 07.172, 07.175, 07.196, 07.202 and 07.255] and the two vetiveryl derivatives [FL-no: 02.214 and 09.821] in FGE.212Rev1 and FGE.212Rev2, respectively. For the remaining five substances [FL-no: 07.033, 07.094, 07.112, 07.140 and 07.219] from subgroup 2.6 there is still a genotoxicity concern and additional data are required.
