The upcoming new nomenclature of food additives

In this meeting a subject matter expert will provide an update on the changing nomenclature, the definitions of food additives and processing aids and subsequently the consequences for labelling food products.

Minutes & Presentation


As the nomenclature of food additives and processing aids may alter overtime, producers of food ingredients need to have a clear understanding on the definitions, their interpretations and consequences on labelling. In order to provide a level playing field and a common understanding on the changing food legislation, IFFI has organized this ‘pop-up’ online event. Subject matter expert Annemieke Tops will update professionals in the industry with working knowledge about this complex issue of food legislation.
