Regulatory aspects of plant-based functional ingredients and other naturally occurring substances [On-demand webinar]

This on-demand webinar illustrates how plant-based ingredients or other naturally occurring substances are used and how this affects their legal qualification. Watch it here for free.

Plant-based ingredients can be applied in many ways for nutritional products. Depending on whether or not they have particular functional aspects (either during the production process or thereafter), or whether they do or do not have a history of safe food use in the EU, they qualify as an additive, processing aid, Novel Food, or regular food ingredient respectively. In fact, the route to market of a plant-based ingredient depends on its legal qualification, as such a qualification is decisive for the applicable regulatory framework.

This session illustrates how plant-based ingredients or other naturally occurring substances are used and how this affects their legal qualification. Examples will include the use of: Certain algae in food supplements CBD sourced from cannabis in regular food products Rapeseed protein isolates as an alternative for animal-derived or soy proteins Mono-and diglycerides of fatty acids used as a glazing agent for a surface treatment of fresh fruits and vegetables Coffee cherries (side stream of coffee beans) as high-quality pectin.
