Codex

Nov 26, 2021

The decision to concentrate on a reduced agenda has paid off as the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses concludes its discussions on a guideline for ready-to-use therapeutic foods and closes in on finalizing the revised standard for follow up formula.

Verna Carolissen, Codex Secretariat said on the completion of the text on ready-to-use therapeutic foods, that the principles under which Codex operates in developing a guideline of this nature are to “set the scene, and that our main focus is to provide an identity for the product, what it should comprise from a nutritional perspective, how it should be labelled and what safety information should be taken into account. And we have done that here.”
