The European Commission has banned the use of titanium dioxide as a food additive (E171), which will take effect in early July after a six-month transition period, the Brussels panel said on Friday.

EU bans a food additive

The European Commission’s decision means that from summer, producers will not be able to add titanium dioxide to the food they produce.
The decision of the EU committee was based on the conclusion that the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) concluded in early May last year that titanium dioxide could no longer be considered safe for use as a food additive. The European Commission’s decision to ban the use of titanium dioxide as a food additive has been unanimously supported by EU member states. (Gebauer Szabolcs, MTI)
