EU food additives list enters into force


Food additives are substances added intentionally to
foodstuffs to perform certain technological functions, for example to colour,
to sweeten or to help preserve foods. From 1 June 2013 the EU list of
authorised food additives takes effect and previous European directives are
replaced with a single regulation.

The EU list – which informs food industry
operators which additives can be used in food as well as how much of them and
for which purposes – takes account of five years of EFSA's scientific advice,
resulting in the removal of some additives and some of their uses from the
market. The new EU list further strengthens consumer protection and provides
greater clarity for food operators.
