ADDITIVES – Council consideration: Caramel colours in malt beverages, and Advantame as sweetener
The following is an extract from the Minutes of the Agriculture and Fisheries Council meeting held on the 14 April 2014:
The Council decided not to oppose the adoption of the following two Commission regulations:
- a regulation amending annex II to regulation 1333/2008, establishing maximum use levels for caramel colours in malt beverages (7227/14 + 7227/14 ADD 1);
- a regulation amending annex II to regulation 1333/2008 and the annex to Commission regulation 231/2012, authorising the use of Advantame as a sweetener and to assign E 969 as an E-number to that food additive (7840/14 + 7840/14 ADD 1).
The Commission regulations are subject to the so called 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.
