  据欧盟食品安全局(EFSA)消息,应欧盟委员会的要求,欧盟食品安全局就胭脂树橙提取物(annatto extracts)作为食品添加剂的暴露风险评估发布意见。

  胭脂树橙是从红木籽中提取的一种食用天然黄橙色素,主要色素成分为红木素(bixin)、降红木素(norbixin)。

  欧盟专家组经评估认为,对于所有人群来讲,红木素的膳食暴露量低于ADI数值,然而对于儿童来讲,在最高水平下,膳食暴露量会超过ADI数值。

  部分原文报道如下:

  Following a request for technical assistance, EFSA carried out an exposure assessment of the colouring principles bixin and norbixin of the food colour annatto extracts(E 160b),from its use as a food additive, taking into account new proposed uses and use levels. In 2016, the EFSA Panel on Food Additives and Nutrient Sources added to Food(ANS)adopted a scientific opinion on the safety of annatto extracts(E 160b)as a food additive. In that opinion, the Panel concluded that the toxicological database was sufficient to derive an acceptable daily intake(ADI)of 6 mg bixin/kg body weight(bw)per day and an ADI of 0.3 mg norbixin/kg bw per day.
