食品伙伴網訊 2021年7月22日，據歐盟食品安全局（EFSA）消息，應歐盟委員會要求，動物飼料添加劑和產品（FEEDAP）研究小組被要求就釀酒酵母（Saccharomyces cerevisiae）MUCL 39885作為貓和狗飼料添加劑的安全性和有效性發表科學意見。
The additive Biosprint® contains viable cells of Saccharomyces cerevisiae MUCL 39885 and is authorised as a feed additive in sows, dairy cows, horses, piglets (weaned), cattle for fattening, minor ruminants for fattening and minor ruminants for dairy products. The applicant has requested to extend the use of the additive to cats and dogs at a minimum inclusion level of 7 × 1010 CFU/kg of complete feed. S. cerevisiae is considered by EFSA to have qualified presumption of safety status and consequently is considered safe for the target species. The additive is considered as a potential skin and eye irritant and a skin and respiratory sensitiser. based on the results on efficacy studies provided, the FEEDAP Panel concludes that Biosprint® is efficacious when used in feeds for dogs. However, the FEEDAP Panel considered that the biological relevance of the magnitude of the effect detected is questionable. based on the trial available, the FEEDAP Panel was unable to conclude on the efficacy of the additive when administered to cats.
