Canada: expansion of the list of permitted food additives

In early February 2015, Canada informed the WTO of Health Canada's proposal to expand the list of permitted food additives. In particular, the approval of the use of three new colouring agents in certain types of food is expected. The food additive use comes into force the day on which the modifications are made to the List of Permitted Colouring Agents, approved by Health Canada. Final date for comments: April 10, 2015.
