Food Chemicals Codex 7th Edition: A Valuable Resource for Food Quality and Safety

The Food Chemicals Codex (FCC) is a compendium of internationally recognized standards and tests for the purity and quality of food ingredients, such as preservatives, flavorings, colorants, and nutrients. It is published by the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP), a scientific nonprofit organization that sets standards for the identity, strength, quality, and purity of medicines, food ingredients, and dietary supplements. The FCC is beneficial to the food industry because it provides quality standards used in agreements between suppliers and manufacturers in ongoing supply decisions and purchasing transactions.

The FCC was first published in 1966 by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) of the National Academy of Sciences. In 2006, USP acquired the FCC from IOM and has since continued to update and expand it through an open collaborative revision process involving industry, government, and the public. The latest edition of the FCC, the seventh edition, was released in 2010 and contains more than 1,100 monographs that provide specifications for food ingredients. The FCC also includes appendices that contain guidance for tests and apparatus use, as well as general information on analytical techniques, good manufacturing practices, reference standards, and infrared spectra.
