The Schedule varies Standards in the Australia New Zealand Food Standards Code.

3             Commencement

The variation commences on the date of gazettal.

Schedule

[1]           Schedule 3 is varied by omitting subsection S3—35(2), substituting

 

                   (2)     The preparation must be obtained from the leaves of the Stevia rebaudiana Bertoni plant by using one of the following processes:

(a)        the leaves are extracted with hot water and the extracts are purified using ion-exchange resins followed by recrystallisation from methanol or aqueous ethanol;

(b)        by enzymatic conversion of purified stevia leaf extract to produce rebaudioside M using protein engineered enzymes that:

(i)             contain both UDP‑glucosyltransferase (EC 2.4.1.17) and sucrose synthase (EC 2.4.1.13) components; and

(ii)            are sourced from both of the following
(a) a Pichia pastoris strain expressing UGT-A;

(b) a Pichia pastoris strain expressing both UGT-B1 and UGT-B2

                   (2A)    The final product may be spray dried.

 

[2]           Schedule 18 is varied by inserting in the table to subsection S18—9(3), in alphabetical order

 

Protein engineered enzymes that: contain both UDP-glucosyltransferase (EC 2.4.1.17) and sucrose synthase (EC 2.4.1.13) components; and are sourced from both of the following; a Pichia pastoris strain expressing UGT-A, and a Pichia pastoris strain expressing both UGT-B1 and UGT-B2.
