EFSA has to approve all additives used in food processing, and sets strict limits on the quantities and categories in which the additives can be used. These can be found in Annex II of Regulation (EC) No 1333/2008. For further advice on the interpretation of the use of additives, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
