An application was submitted for the authorisation of L-tyrosine as a feed additive in the functional group ‘amino acids, their salts and analogues’. That application concerns the authorisation of L-tyrosine as a feed additive for all animal species, to be classified in the additive category ‘nutritional additives’.
The European Food Safety Authority concluded in its opinion of 20 June 2013 that, under the proposed conditions of use, L-tyrosine does not have an adverse effect on animal health, human health or the environment and that it may be considered efficacious to contribute to the requirements for sulphur- containing amino acids in all animal species.
The Authority does not consider that there is a need for specific requirements of post-market monitoring.
