Abstract In the s, the idea of a single harmonized list of food additives for the European Union arose. Already in , the E-classification system, a robust food safety system intended to protect consumers from possible food-related risks, was introduced.
Initially, it was restricted to colorants, but at later stages also preservatives, antioxidants, emulsifiers, stabilizers, thickeners, gelling agents, sweeteners, and flavorings were included. Low overall concentrations of such compounds in natural producers due to inherent regulation mechanisms or production processes based on non-regenerative carbon sources led to an increasing interest in establishing more reliable and sustainable production platforms.
In this context, microorganisms have received significant attention as alternative sources providing access to these compounds. Scientific advancements in the fields of molecular biology and genetic engineering opened the door toward using engineered microorganisms for overproduction of metabolites of their carbon metabolism such as carboxylic acids and amino acids.
In addition, entire pathways, e. The review is focused on metabolic engineering strategies of industrially relevant production hosts also discussing current bottlenecks in the underlying metabolic pathways and how they can be addressed in the future. Keywords: food additives, E numbers, European Union, microbial production, metabolic engineering, plant natural products Introduction History of the approval of food additives in the european union In industrial food production, consistent quality of foodstuff, and protection against contamination by harmful microorganisms must be guaranteed.
For this purpose, a broad range of natural or artificial food additives are used in today's food applications, which not only serve for increasing the shelf life of foodstuff, but also for modifying its color, taste, odor, or texture. For preventing an arbitrary use of potentially harmful substances, there was strong desire toward establishing obligatory guidelines for the use of food additives.
The additives sector has played a very important role in the approximation of food law in the European Union EU.
With this directive the E-classification system, a robust food safety system intended to protect consumers from possible food-related risks, was introduced.
