Food additive re-evaluation: EFSA workshop in November focuses on foods for infants below 16 weeks of age

EFSA is working on the re-evaluation of a number of food additives intended to be used in foods for infants below 16 weeks of age. In doing so, scientists are also addressing data gaps for these additives that have previously been identified by EFSA and for which seven data calls have been published this week.

In November, EFSA will host a one-day workshop on the status of this ongoing work. Representatives from EU bodies, international organisations, national authorities, NGOs, industry, research and academia are welcome to join the event.

They are also invited to help us shape the workshop programme by sending suggestions to: FIP [at]

Further information on the event and on how to register will be published on the EFSA website in due time. So watch this space and save the date!
