Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) publishes a summary of views on the safety of non traditional foods and ingredients.  These provide guidance on whether use of these products is permitted in New Zealand and Australia without an application being made to FSANZ for a food safety assessment.  The summary indicates those products that are deemed to be novel, and those that have a history of use with no food safety concerns.
