    William Wrigley of the United States recently applied to the British Food Safety Agency for approval of Magnolia officinalis extract as a new food ingredient

    In this regard, the Advisory Committee (acnfp) of the UK food safety agency has drawn up a draft on this issue and asked for public opinions

    Because Magnolia officinalis has the effect of refreshing the oral air, the company wants to add the ingredient to chewing gum and limited edition mints

    It is understood that new food must undergo strict safety testing before entering the EU market

    In the UK, acnfp is responsible for new food testing
