EFFA Information Letter FL/10/02
23 March 2011 | Source: European Flavour Association
EFFA (European Flavour Association) has finalised its Guidance Document for the Production of Natural Flavouring Substances and (Natural) Flavouring Preparations (herein abbreviated “Natural Flavouring Ingredients”) in the EU.
This Guidance Document is a follow-up to the previous Guidance Document on the new European legislation on flavourings (Regulation (EC) No 1334/2008) which was issued with EFFA IL FL/09/02 of 19/02/2009.
Whereas the previous Guidance Document of 2009 mainly focused on the practical application of the Flavouring Regulation and highlighted the major changes compared to the current Flavouring Directive 88/388/EEC, the purpose of the current document is to provide a consistent interpretation of what constitutes a permissible process for the manufacture of Natural Flavouring Ingredients in light of the new Flavouring Regulation.
