Consolidation of food additive and adjuvant standards published
Mar 10, 2023
The National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA in Spanish) published the consolidation of the standards for food additives and processing aids authorized for use in food. The purpose of this consolidation is to facilitate the identification of the substances authorized, with their respective conditions of use, both by the regulated sector and by the control authorities.
The requirements and lists of food additives and processing aids authorized for use in foods are now included in two resolutions and one normative instruction:
- Resolution of the Collegiate Council - DRC 778/2023, establishing the general principles, technological functions and conditions of use of food additives and food technology adjuvants.
- Regulatory Instruction 211/2023, establishing the technological functions, maximum limits and conditions of use of food additives and food technology aids authorized for use in food.
- Collegiate Council Resolution - RDC 779/2023, establishing chemical yeast food additives and biological yeast processing aids and yeast nutrients intended for use in bakery and biscuit products.
