Ingredients

Vitamins/Minerals, Botanicals, Bioactives, Additives…

Numerous legislations concerning food ingredients have to be taken into account for product formulation, particularly:

  • Regulation (EC) N° 1333/2008 on food additives
  • Regulation (EC) N° 1334/2008 on food flavourings
  • Regulation (EC) N° 1332/2008 on food enzymes
  • Positive lists of vitamins and minerals from Directive 2002/46/EC, Regulation (EU) N° 609/2013 and Regulation (EC) N° 1925/2006
  • Regulation (EU) 2015/2283 on novel foods which have not been used for human consumption to a significant degree within Europe prior to 15 May 1997, for which an authorization is needed to place the product on the market

Some specific domestic rules may exist for substances with a nutritional or physiological effect and botanicals, for which use is currently not harmonized at the European level. Each European Member State may have its own positive and/or negative list, with possible specific conditions of use (parts of plants, warnings, maximum doses…).

The communication on those ingredients is regulated by Regulation (EC) N° 1924/2006 on nutrition and health claims.
