Sulfamic acid (packaging)

Return to Listing
Report No.:  62
Type of Conclusion:  1
ID Code:  5329-14-6
Year:  1972
CFR Section:  186.1093
SCOGS Opinion:  It seems most unlikely that more than minute amounts of sulfamic acid might occasionally enter foods by migration or abrasion from packaging materials. The acute toxicity of sulfamic acid is relatively low; it does not appear to be metabolized but is excreted unchanged in the urine. The Select Committee has weighed the foregoing and concludes that: There is no evidence in the available information on sulfamic acid that demonstrates, or suggests reasonable grounds to suspect, a hazard to the public when it is used in food packaging materials as now practiced or as it might be expected to be used for such purposes in the future.
