EFFL (EUROPEAN FOOD AND FEED LAW) CONFERENCE 11.12.2014 ON THE USES AND ABUSES OF NEGATIVE CLAIMS

During this workshop, most legal experts agreed that there is no clear legal basis against the use of the “palm oil free” claim. No EU legislation prohibits this ingredient claim. Only in cases where this claim is clearly presented as having a nutritional or health benefit, it can be judged as misleading. In annex the presentation of Christophe Didion from DG Santé, explaining the vision of the EU Commission.
