What foods may Codex be dealing with in the future?

Codex

Nov 17, 2021

The 44th Codex Alimentarius Commission taking place virtually for the second year in succession has successfully adopted a range of international standards.

As day six got underway from the Rome studio, with over 450 delegates participating on a Saturday, discussions moved from standards already set to the future of food and an innovative area labelled “new foods and production systems” (NFPS). FAO calls these foods ‘new’ due to previous low global consumption. One example is a plant-based protein alternative such as seaweed, another would be edible insects. New can also mean new to Codex, or due to advances in technology such as 3-D printing or cell culture-based products.
