‘Industrial trans fats in foods – setting a legal limit’ – EuChemS responds to European Commission call for feedback

The European Commission recently published a call for feedback on setting a legal limit for industrial trans fats in foods, Draft Regulation – Ares (2018)5103401.

EuChemS welcomes and supports the European Commission’s draft text (regulation amending Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1925/2006 of the European Parliament and the Council). EuChemS agrees that the limit for industrial trans fats in foods, which are intended for the final consumer should not exceed 2 grams per 100 grams of fat. Further reductions in the future should in turn be encouraged. Indeed, it was pointed out that the 2% limit can still be considered too high when applied to products consumed in large quantities.
