Not sure if this is the same for version 5.4 but in previous versions after 
adding the new column in MySQL:

Edit the associated table structure file and add the new column/field:

Then edit the /catalogs/storename/products/products.txt file - add a TAB at 
the end of the first row and then the new field name.

Then delete /catalogs/storename/products/products.sql

and restart interchange. Deleting the products.sql file tells interchange 
that there are new database parameters to read in for that particular table.

The new field should now appear in the items area of the admin UI.
Click the little icon at the end of the row and customise the new field.
