What are the new food regulations?
Today we will focus on use of additives in food.
Currently riboflavin (E101) and carotenes (E160a) can be used for processing of dried potato granules and chips. Only curcumin (E100) was permitted for use so far. These colours cause renewal of the colour shade, which changes due to processing of potatoes. The European Food Safety Authority excluded health risks caused by using riboflavin and carotenes; nevertheless, if their intake does not exceed the quantities that can be obtained by regular consumption of foods containing these substances naturally.
