Welcome to the International Food Additive Database!


The International Food Additive Database is a joint effort project between the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), the U.S. Dairy Export Council (USDEC), and Bryant Christie Inc. (BCI). The goal is to provide a single source of information on global food additive use regulations.

The database allows users to compare food additive maximum use levels between countries for similar food types and categories. Search results include the exact food terminology used by the country, as well as any unique nuances noted in the country's food additive regulations.

Users may search by additive, by technological function, or by market.

Currently, the database includes regulations for over 800 additives across 60 markets.
