EU: European Commission begins intensive work on maximum daily levels of vitamins and minerals in food supplements

Two decades after the adoption of Directive 2002/46 / EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 10 June 2002 on the approximation of the laws of the Member States relating to food supplements, which requires the Commission to set maximum daily levels of vitamins and minerals in food supplements, the Commission to regulate the area of ​​limit values ​​of vitamins and minerals in food supplements, as well as in enriched foods such as cereal flakes, margarines, etc. There have been several attempts to regulate this area in the past, but due to different expert approaches in the Member States, regulation in this area has always died out, resulting in problems for food business operators in the internal market. The draft regulation is already being prepared, and the timetable envisages a public consultation in the second quarter of 2023 and the adoption of the regulation in the first quarter of 2024. Once again, we expect the Commission to work hard.
