2022-04Internal discussion paper on added fibre

EU Specialty Food Ingredients has developed an internal discussion paper on added fibre. The document provides EU Specialty Food Ingredients’ members with a clear overview of the applicable EU legislation relating to the addition of fibre to foods and presents members’ common view on the interpretation of the legislation.

As fibre can be used in foods for many purposes such as increasing the fibre content of foods, for its technological properties, or in food reformulation to decrease the amount of energy, fat or added sugars, it can have different regulatory status. Therefore, the discussion paper on added fibre is a great tool which can help members with the interpretation of the relevant legislation applicable to their products.
