Regulations on sweeteners

The use of sweeteners in foodstuffs and pharmaceuticals requires legal authorisation. Before an approval of sweeteners as food additives they undergo extensive scientific tests, lasting up to ten years, which must prove that the amount of the additive that is expected to be consumed by humans is safe.
The Regulation (EC) 1333/2008 sets the rules on food additives, e.g.:
- Lists all approved food additives
- Shows functional classes of food additives
- Lays down the conditions of use
