ANVISA  reviews the classification of dietary sweeteners


Oct 02, 2023

The directors of the National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA in Portuguese), meeting during the 15th Ordinary Public Assembly, have deliberated on the modification of the regulatory framework applicable to dietary and tabletop sweeteners. The proposal aims to contribute to a more consistent and proportional application of the nutritional labeling of products, according to their compositional characteristics and intended use.

The objective is that table-top sweeteners should be classified as food additives formulated with one or more authorized sweeteners, intended for use by the final consumer to sweeten food or beverages. Dietary sweeteners should be defined as table-top sweeteners formulated without the addition of the ingredients sucrose, fructose and glucose.
