Whole-embryo concentrations of BDCPP were 2 to 3 orders of magnitude lower than those of TDCPP (Figure 4), suggesting that TDCPP is not readily metabolized to BDCPP in zebrafish embryos, or is further metabolized to unanalyzed metabolites such as 1,3-dichloro-2-propanol.
A summary follows of the Committee's evaluations of toxicological and intake data on various specific food additives (diacetyltartaric and fatty acid esters of glycerol, quillaia extracts, invertase from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, B-carotene from Blakeslea trispora, curcumin, phosphates, diphosphates and polyphosphates, hydrogenated poly-1-decene, natamycin, D-tagatose, carrageenan, processed Eucheuma seaweed, curdlan, acetylated oxidised starch, [alpha]-cyclodextrin and sodium sulfate), flavouring agents and contaminants (3-chloro-1,2-propanediol, 1,3-dichloro-2-propanol, and a large number of polychlorinated dibenzodioxins, polychlorinated dibenzofurans and coplanar polychlorinated biphenyls).
New and updated profiles on the following chemicals have been completed: Brilliant Blue FCF; Carnauba wax; Castor oil; 1,3-Dichloro-2-propanol, and 3,4-Dihydrocoumarin.
