Codex accomplishment for NATCOL
The 53rd Codex Committee on Food Additives was once again a real achievement for NATCOL. All the issues of interest to the natural colours industry were favourably approved: new specifications were approved for spirulina, new classification for riboflavin, new maximum use levels for carotenes and for several other natural colours specifically for dairy products, fats and oils and edible ices. NATCOL also officially confirmed its commitment to provide data on anthocyanins in 2027. We are very proud of our representing team which did an excellent job in getting these positive results and we look forward to contributing to next year work program which will encompass additional natural colours provisions.
