gComply Plus Modules
The Food Additives module contains a list of over 3,000 substances that can be added to human food as additives, flavors, vitamins or minerals. By choosing their functions and usages (food categories) in specific countries, a visual red /green matrix report can quickly be viewed. More details along with citations hyperlinked to the regulations cited are also at the fingertips of the regulatory professional.
The Contaminants module contains thousands of pesticides as well as a myriad of veterinary drugs, mycotoxins, heavy metals, marine biotoxins and microbiologicals. The maximum residue levels regulated in specific commodities are easily found by substance or by commodity.
The Standards of Identity module contains the required ingredients and physiochemical measurements needed to meet the chocolate and ice cream standards around the world. A recipe built in the recipe management module is submitted to a standard category to make the ‘go’or ‘no-go’ decision of whether the recipe meets the standard. If required ingredients are missing from a recipe, the missing substances report quickly shows what substances are needed.
The Recipe Management module provides the ability of the user to either build a recipe on the fly or upload a recipe via a spreadsheet. This module also provides the ability to nest one recipe within another and then decide whether to submit each individual recipe for Additive or SOI analysis or to explode the nested recipes and submit them together as one. When a recipe is submitted for Additive analysis, rules determine if the concentration levels of the additive ingredients meet their threshold levels both individually as well as in combination using molecular weight conversion factors when one substance is expressed as another.
