ADDITIVES/CLAIMS – Council discussions: Food additives (amendments) and health claims (rejected claims)

The following is an extract from the minutes of the Economic and Financial Affairs Council meeting:

The Council decided not to object to a Commission regulation amending annex II to regulation 1333/2008 as regards the title of the food additives category "Vinegars" (15273/15).

The Council also decided not to object to a Commission regulation refusing to authorise certain health claims made on foods (14805/15 + 14869/15).

The regulations are delegated acts pursuant to article 290 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU. They can now enter into force, unless the European Parliament objects.
