DIETARY FOODS - Diet replacement for weight control: Council discussions

The following is an extract from the Agriculture and Fisheries Council meeting on the 17-18 July 2017:

The Council decided not to object to a Commission regulation laying down specific compositional and information requirements for total diet replacement for weight control (10021/17 + ADD1). The regulation updates the existing rules regarding total diet replacement for weight control with an energy content between 3 360 kJ (800kcal) and 5 040kJ (1200kcal) and lays down specific rules on total diet replacement with an energy content fewer than 3 360kJ (800kcal).

The regulation is a delegated act pursuant to article 290 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU. It now can enter into force, unless the European Parliament objects.
