FDA Rating and limits on various solvents

Here is a good link to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Food and Drug Administration, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER), Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER)  list of solvents and regulatory limits on residuals.

    It may be not covered by FDA because it is easier to remove than hexane or other larger hydrocarbons with higher boiling points. It also is not a very common solvent used in pharmaceutical manufacturing since it’s more difficult to work with.


  2. Why is there no listing for N-Butane included? I find it very difficult to get credible information on this subject in the food industry, yet every can of spray-oil is using it as a propellent! they demonize it in public forum, and continually keep useful scientific research and information out of our hands. . .(not that I’m surprised)..
