Abstract

A notification from Zenko Superfoods Pte. Ltd. (Singapore) has been submitted to the European Commission under Article 14 of Regulation (EU) 2015/2283 to place on the market roasted and popped kernels from the seeds of Euryale ferox Salisb. as a traditional food from a third country (TF). In line with Article 15(2) of that Regulation, EFSA was asked by the European Commission whether there are duly reasoned safety objections to the placing on the market of the TF within the European Union (EU). The TF consists of roasted and popped kernels from the seeds of Euryale ferox Salisb. that, according to the applicant, have been consumed for more than 25 years in India. The TF is proposed to be marketed in the EU as a snack. EFSA considers that the available data on composition and history of use of the TF do not raise safety concerns. Considering the available data, EFSA does not raise safety objections to the placing on the market of the TF (roasted and popped kernels from the seeds of Euryale ferox Salisb.) within the EU.
