Australian Native Products is excited to announce its lemon myrtle leaf has achieved self-affirmed Generally Recognised as Safe (GRAS) certification under the United States Food & Drug Administration (USFDA).
The certification marks an important milestone for the company in its mission to expand lemon myrtle’s reach into the US food and beverage market.
Self-affirmed GRAS status provides manufacturers with a way to guarantee product quality under the strict regulatory and safety guidelines determined by the USFDA.
The self-affirmed certification awarded to ANP was assessed independently by an expert panel that concluded that ANP’s lemon myrtle leaf is indeed GRAS.
ANP general manager Ross Norris says the news means the world’s largest lemon myrtle producer will now be able to explore exciting new opportunities for lemon myrtle leaf products in the US market.
