NATCOL registered as interested party to the call for data published by DG SANTE for providing scientific and technical data on the permitted food additives E 140(i) chlorophylls, E 140(ii) chlorophyllins, E 141(i) copper complexes of chlorophylls and E 141(ii) copper complexes of chlorophyllins

The opinions for Chlorophyll products were published during 2015 and concluded that Chlorophyll itself was not of safety concern because it was a part of the normal diet. However, EFSA considered that there was limited data available and more research would be required to fully assess all these products.

NATCOL is committed to provide data for these chlorophyll products and is looking forward for closer collaboration with other interested stakeholders.
