Food Additives

European legislation on additives is moving towards a single procedure for the authorisation and evaluation of additives which takes account of the latest evaluation measures for foodstuffs. The planned Regulation combines the Community lists of authorised products in a single list.

Only products on this list will be allowed to be added to human foods. Data is collected for risk assessment, risk management and includes requests for authorisation of food additives or modification of conditions of use and the subsequent publication of lists of authorised additives and conditions of use. Additives: substances that are not normally consumed as food themselves but are added to food intentionally for a technological purpose, such as preservation.
