Novel Foods

Supporting Innovative Food Products

Under the Food and Drugs Act and Regulations, all foods that have been produced through new processes, that do not have a history of safe use as a food, or that have been modified by genetic manipulation are considered novel foods and must be assessed by Health Canada before they can be sold in Canada.

Characterizing a product as novel or innovative can be tricky, as can be the process for completing the required federal assessment. KGK Science’s Canada-based regulatory team, led by the author of the Draft New Dietary Ingredient Guidance and former Branch Chief of Toxicology at the FDA, is uniquely equipped to support your business in securing the required evidence for completing a successful novel foods application.

  • Technical review and GAP analysis to ensure that evidence will meet requirements
  • Planning studies to support identity and safety data requirements including protocol development, study management, and analysis of results
  • Expert regulatory toxicologists writing your application and corresponding directly with Health Canada to ensure requirements are met and the process is completed.
