ADDITIVES – Council discussions: Food additives and food flavourings
The following is an extract from the minutes of the General Affairs Council Meeting on 15 March 2016:
The Council decided not to oppose the adoption of the following three Commission regulations:
- a regulation authorising the use of calcium propionate (E282) as a preservative in tortillas to extend their shelf-life (6315/16)
- a regulation establishing a food category 'edible caseinates' in the regulation setting out an EU list of additives approved for use in food (6365/16)
- a regulation listing seven food flavourings as evaluated substances rather than substances under evaluation (6366/16)
The Commission regulations are subject to the 'regulatory procedure with scrutiny'. This means that now that the Council has given its consent, the Commission may adopt them, unless the European Parliament objects.
