EU – EXTENSION OF USE FOR MILK WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE

The novel food authorisation for bovine milk basic whey protein isolate is extended for use in FSMP and food supplements destined for infants. Note that use in infant formula and follow-on formula was already foreseen for infants. Following the Opinion of EFSA, there would be no safety risk in the extension of the permission to the other food categories.

Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1686 of 8 October 2019 authorising the extension of use of bovine milk basic whey protein isolate as a novel food under Regulation (EU) 2015/2283 of the European Parliament and of the Council and amending Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2017/2470 - link
