The reported use levels were derived applying the dilution factors indicated by data providers or the same factor for similar foods when a dilution factor was not available. From the analytical data obtained, the authors concluded that the two commercial food products when dispersed in water (as suggested on their labels in terms of stirring and concentration), contained nanoparticles only when analysed by DCS. The Panel agreed with this NOAEL. The Panel concluded that the EU specifications are insufficient to adequately characterise the food additive E 551. These aggregates can further agglomerate to form larger structures. In recent studies in rats with engineered nanosized silica and conducted according to protocols in accordance or close to OECD guidelines, the reported effects (increase absolute and relative weights of some organs mainly the liver and lung with no indication of histopathological changes) were limited when using doses up to 980 mg/kg per day, the highest dose tested. Sub‐chronic (13‐week) oral toxicity study with sipernat 22 in rats. TNO, Zeist. In a recent prenatal developmental toxicity study in rats (Hofmann et al., 2015) the nano‐precipitated silica (NM‐200) showed no maternal or developmental toxicity up to 1,000 mg/kg bw per day, the highest dose tested. Fumed silica is produced in essentially an anhydrous state, whereas the wet‐process products are obtained as hydrates or contain surface absorbed water, Silicon dioxide is an amorphous substance, which is produced synthetically by either a vapour‐phase hydrolysis process, yielding pyrogenic (fumed) silica, or by a wet process, yielding precipitated silica (silica gel). FDRL (Food and Drug Research Laboratories), 1973e. Waterglass: sodium salt of silicic acid that forms silicic acid upon acidification (Napierska et al., 2010). Civo Institutes TNO, Zeist NL. Commission Regulation (EU) No 257/2010 of 25 March 2010 setting up a programme for the re‐evaluation of approved food additives in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1333/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council on food additives. This exposure estimate is calculated as follows: The non‐brand‐loyal consumer scenario: It was assumed that a consumer is exposed long‐term to silicon dioxide (E 551) present at the mean reported use level in food. Report No. Clinical signs were recorded daily and maternal body weighed data at GD 0, 8, 10 and 14. 3D Microfluidic Platform and Tumor Vascular Mapping for Evaluating Anti-Angiogenic RNAi-Based Nanomedicine. Data on usage levels of silicon dioxide (E 551) in foods in response to the EFSA call for food additives usage level and/or concentration data in food and beverages intended for human consumption (2016). (2011) study, male BALB/c mice (n = 11 per group) were injected intravenously with doses of 10, 40 and 200 mg/kg bw of silica particles with diameters of 30, 70 and 300 nm (SP30, SP70, and SP300); a control group received the vehicle (deionised water at 0.1 mL/10 g). However, there were some indications from in vitro studies for structural and/or numerical chromosomal aberrations. According to the authors, corona formation affected haemolysis, thrombocyte activation, nanoparticle uptake and endothelial cell death. Robust study summary. The Panel noted that several analytical methods are available to measure the particle size of nanomaterials (dynamic light scattering (DLS), laser diffraction (LD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM)). CAB‐O‐SIL EH‐5, Salmonella/mammalian‐microsome plate incorporation mutagenicity assay (Ames test). Silicon dioxide was reviewed by TemaNord (2002) along with calcium silicate, magnesium silicate, magnesium trisilicate and talc. The Panel considered that these studies in mice and rats indicated that SAS was not carcinogenic; however, the precise characteristics of the test material was not fully described, in particular the description of the primary particle size. on novel foods, engineered nanomaterial means ‘any intentionally produced material that has one or more dimensions of the order of 100 nm or less or that is composed of discrete functional parts, either internally or at the surface, many of which have one or more external dimensions of the order of 100 nm or less, including structures, agglomerates or aggregates, which may have a size above the order of 100 nm but retain properties that are characteristic of the nanoscale’. A study published in January 2017 showed that chronic exposure of rats to E171 may cause precancerous colorectal lesions. Study summary.

Food Reactions - Food Intolerance, Allergy & Adverse Reactions Suggest research about this Additive SIDENT 9 – Testing the acute toxicity after single oral administration. Eleven different food‐grade samples were analysed using DLS, MALS, asymmetric flow‐field flow fractionation (AF4), inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP‐MS) and TEM. authorisation of food additives is expected by autumn 2004. Groups of 21–24 pregnant CD‐1 mice were gavaged at gestation days (GD) 6–15 with 0 (vehicle, presumably water) 13, 62, 290 or 1,340 mg/kg bw per day (FDRL, 1973a (Documentation provided to EFSA n. 30)). The authors used hydrodynamic chromatography with inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (HDC‐ICP‐MS) to determine the particle size and determine the concentration of silicon and derive the silica content in the selected foods. Negative results were observed for the induction of micronuclei in the bone marrow of mice following oral gavage (but no proof of bone marrow exposure) (Kwon et al., 2014), or following intratracheal administration to rats (Maser et al., 2015). All food additive preparations. nanoparticles of SAS interact with various components of a biological milieu and are covered by a corona with a composition that is variable from one preparation to another. The re‐evaluation was requested because the substance has always been produced using synthetic amorphous silicon dioxide in the nanoform. The Scientific Committee on Food (SCF) established a group acceptable daily intake (ADI) ‘not specified’ for silicon dioxide and silicates.

However, the Panel noted that their presence in the food additive cannot be excluded due to a lack of precision in the specifications for E 551. Despite the limitations in the subchronic, reproductive and developmental toxicological studies, including studies with nano silicon dioxide, there was no indication of adverse effects. E 551 does not raise a concern with respect to genotoxicity. The most common methods for sensitive silicon analysis are inductively coupled plasma atomic absorption spectrometry (ICP‐AES) and flameless atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS) (Carlisle, 1997). 1574. Über die chronische Toxizität von AEROSIL. Percentage of silica in nano‐form range from ‘not measured’ in 21 food products to up to 19% (coffee creamer) or 33% (instant asparagus soup. Data were available on acute oral toxicity of precipitated SAS (JM Huber Corporation, 1978; Spanjers and Til, 1979; ASTA, 1990; Degussa AG, 1990 (Documentation provided to EFSA n. 48, 61, 2, 22)) and fumed (Cabot, 1964; Leuschner, 1977; Spanjers and Til, 1979 (Documentation provided to EFSA n. 5, 53, 61)), as well as silica gel (Saruta et al., 1969; Grace, 1976 (Documentation provided to EFSA n. 45)). For the remaining food categories, the mean of the typical reported use levels was used. Despite the limitations in the subchronic, reproductive and developmental toxicological studies, including studies with nano silicon dioxide, there was no indication of adverse effects. Artificial food additives numbers and codes, their list can be printed out. Submitted to EFSA by CEFIC, September 2011. No dose‐related alterations of organ weights were seen. Haematological, histopathological and biochemical analyses showed no significant differences between control mice and mice treated with the silica particles. engineered nanomaterials (ENMs)) of insoluble inorganic food additives including amorphous silica (E 551). Two different process technologies are used for the manufacture of SAS, (i) the thermal process resulting in the production of pyrogenic or fumed silica and (ii) the wet process yielding precipitated silica, silica gel or hydrous silica. As a food additive, it serves as an anticaking agent to avoid clumping. 02G11001. A prenatal developmental toxicity study with precipitated nano‐precipitated silica (NM‐200, (JRC, 2013), Appendix B) (BASF, 2013 (Documentation provided to EFSA n. 3); Hofmann et al., 2015) was performed in Wistar rats in compliance with OECD TG 414 and GLP. Снеки «Бульбарикы» сметана зелень. Leuschner F, 1963a. In a study using a protocol comparable to OECD Guideline 401, five male and five female SD/N BR rats per group were orally gavaged with precipitated silica (Zeosyl 113; Appendix A). When SiO2 nanoparticles were administered intravenously with the same total dose, silicon content in organs was much higher than after oral dosing, with silicon mainly in the liver where it persisted up to 90 days after administration. Food consumption data from the following population groups were used in the exposure assessment: infants, toddlers, children, adolescents, adults and the elderly. Splenocytes from mice exposed to OVA plus nSP30 secreted higher levels of Th2‐type cytokines than mice exposed to OVA alone. No effects occurred on body weight gain, food consumption or survival. The Panel noted that in many studies reported in this opinion, the term ‘nanomaterials’ was often used to designate (structured) materials with sizes up to 1,000 nm (1 μm). Available online: http://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/datexfoodcdb/datexfooddb.htm Soon you’ll be able to find food that ticks all the right boxes!Let’s face it, choosing healthy, sustainable and ethical food products without blowing the budget is hard work. Morfeld P, Bosch A, Weber K, Heinemann M and Krueger N, 2017. These structures did not show the shape and appearance of amorphous silica. In the NANOGENOTOX project (online), nano‐fumed silica (NM‐200 and NM‐203; JRC, 2013; Appendix B) were used. Synthetic Amorphous Silica in Food: Findings about “Liver Fibrosis” and Other Study‐Related Findings in Van der Zande et al. The authors concluded that: ‘the liver effects observed in the present study are much lower in severity and incidence than in previous studies in which silica nanoparticles (produced by precipitation) had been systemically administered. In a study with human Caco‐2 cells (Sakai‐Kato et al., 2014), inhibition of cell viability was induced by SAS nanoparticles with a size of 50 nm at a concentration of 1 mg/mL. Dietary surveys with only one day per subject were excluded as they are considered as not adequate to assess repeated exposure. How to Address the Adjuvant Effects of Nanoparticles on the Immune System. due to the limitations in the available database described above the Panel was unable to confirm the current acceptable daily intake (ADI) ‘not specified’. Overall, the Panel noted that the SAS test items used in the biological and toxicological studies available were different in their physicochemical properties (e.g. According to the author, the NOAEL of this study was 1,000 mg/kg bw per day, the highest dose tested. Information on the particles size of silicon dioxide (E 551) as reported in the literature is presented in Appendix C. The specifications for silicon dioxide (E 551) as defined in the Commission Regulation (EU) No 231/2012 and by JECFA (2015) are listed in Table 3. The EFSA Panel on Food Additives and Nutrient Sources added to Food (ANS) provides a scientific opinion re‐evaluating the safety of silicon dioxide (E 551) when used as a food additive. The food additive, silicon dioxide (E 551), is a material comprised of aggregated nanosized primary particles. Occasionally electron dense structures were found in the cytoplasm of different cells in both treated and untreated animals. Maier M, Albers P, Babick F, Retamal Marín RR and Stintz M, 2014. Commission Regulation (EU) No 231/2012 of 9 March 2012 laying down specifications for food additives listed in Annexes II and III to Regulation (EC) No 1333/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council. According to the authors, the absence of nanoparticles of silica in the gastric stage could be due to the low pH combined with high electrolyte concentration. According to the authors, interactions between proteins and nanomaterials play important roles in the biological effects and bio‐distribution of nanomaterials. In primary human umbilical vein endothelial cells, Corbalan et al. Caesarean section and necropsy of dams was performed at GD 17. ELC (Federation of European Food Additives, Food Enzymes and Food Cultures Industries), 2009. In the mouth stage of digestion, particles with a size range of 5–50 nm and 50–500 nm were present in food products with E 551, added SAS or added engineered silica nanoparticles. No effects of toxicological relevance on body weight were reported (difference to control < 10%). Submitted to EFSA by CEFIC, September 2011. the material tested (silica gel, Syloid 244) in these chronic studies did not cover the full‐size range of the nanoparticles that could be present in the food additive E 551 according to information provided by industry and the current EU specifications which contain no particle size limits. Zane et al. Submitted to EFSA by CEFIC, September 2011. M‐5 (2L063) and F‐2 – Acute oral administration ‐ mice. The main purpose of using an anti-caking agent in powdered or granulated materials is to prevent the formation of lumps. This helps in easing packaging, transport, and consumption. However, these developmental studies were not well documented; the statistical analysis was not described and they were not performed in accordance with the current guidelines. Commission implementing Regulation (EU) No 408/2014 of 23 April 2014 approving synthetic amorphous silicon dioxide as an existing active substance for use in biocidal products for product‐type 18. The silicon content was measured in lung and liver by ICP‐AES. 12 July 2001, Genotoxicity of different nanocarriers: possible modifications for the delivery of nucleic acids, Effect of micro/nano silica particle feeding for mice, Determination of the acute oral toxicity in rats of a number of different amorphous silicic acids, and other “white products”. Overall, it was considered that the exposure was overestimated due to the use levels used and assumptions made in the exposure assessment. E codes are codes sometimes found on food labels in the European Union (GB, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal, etc.) Equivocal results for the induction of micronuclei were observed for fumed silica (NM‐203) in the rat bone marrow, following the intravenous route of administration (Guichard et al., 2015b), or in the colon of rats for fumed silica (NM‐202 and NM‐203) following oral administration (Tarantini et al., 2015a). In the study by Yoshida et al. Cabot, Tuscola, Illinois, USA (referred as Cabot GmbH, 1989a by ECETOC. While exposure to SAS or NM‐202 did not result in clearly elevated tissue ‘silica’ concentration after 28 days of exposure, after 84 days ‘silica’ accumulation was reported in the spleen of animals exposed to SAS, but not to NM‐202. In the absence of information about haematological and clinical chemistry parameters in the document available, the Panel considered that no reliable NOAEL could be identified from this study. Suspensions of the test item in apple juice were given in the morning and midday. despite the limitations in the subchronic, reproductive and developmental toxicological studies, including studies with nano silicon dioxide, there was no indication of adverse effects. Together they form a unique fingerprint. As regards subchronic toxicity with nano‐silica, the reported effects in animals (increase absolute and relative weights of some organs mainly the liver and lung with no indication of histopathological changes) were limited, even when using doses up to 2,000 mg/kg per day. The Panel noted that the highest exposure estimates were always much lower than the no observed adverse effect levels (NOAELs) identified in the different toxicity studies available. Silica nanoparticles (12 nm) were identified as the most potent, with particle surface acidity associated with their cytotoxic and inflammatory potency across the cell lines. The ECETOC (2006) report concluded that ‘In contrast to crystalline silica, SAS is soluble in physiological media and soluble chemical species are formed which are eliminated via the urine without modification after intestinal resorption’. Products from the Canned foods category - 7 products: The same parameters than in the study on mice were investigated.
