The New Year will bring several changes to food legislation. The first is introduced on 1 January 2022. A ban on the use of Titanium Dioxide (E171) as a food additive.
This has been banned in France since 1 January 2020 and Spain has approved the European Commission’s proposal to ban the use of Titanium Dioxide (E171) from 2022.
Titanium Dioxide is a colourant used to brighten foods like – chewing gum, pastries, food supplements, soups and broths.
This ban is currently not in force in the UK, however if you plan to export goods to the EU your products will have to be reformulated before they are accepted into Europe.
