LIST OF GENERIC DESCRIPTORS PUBLISHED

May 29, 2019

The European Commission has published the list of generic descriptors which are excluded from the scope of the Nutrition and Health Claims Regulation 1924/2006. Although the listed denominations could imply a health effect they are exempted from the Regulation’s restrictions due to their traditionally use in certain member states. The given exemptions are language and country specific.

Commission Regulation (EU) 2019/343 of 28 February 2019 providing derogations from Article 1(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1924/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council on nutrition and health claims made on food for the use of certain generic descriptors - link
