Conditions of use of the novel food lactitol amended

European Union

Apr 10, 2024

With implementing Regulation (EU) 2024/1023 of 8 April 2024, the Commission amended Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/2470 as regards the conditions of use of the novel food "lactitol".

The safety assessment underpinning the authorisation of lactitol at a maximum level of 20 g/day in food supplements is not linked to a specific form in which the food supplements are made available to the consumer and therefore, the form does not affect the safety profile of the novel food. At the time of the authorisation, the forms of this novel food were limited to capsules, tablets or powders simply because these were the forms proposed by the respective applicant. The Commission considers now that the conditions of use of lactitol should be limited to the generic reference to food supplements and their forms defined in Article 2 of Directive 2002/46/EC.
