LIST OF GENERIC DESCRIPTORS PUBLISHED

The European Commission has published the list of generic descriptors which are excluded from the scope of the Nutrition and Health Claims Regulation 1924/2006. Although the listed denominations could imply a health effect they are exempted from the Regulation’s restrictions due to their traditionally use in certain member states. The given exemptions are language and country specific.

Commission Regulation (EU) 2019/343 of 28 February 2019 providing derogations from Article 1(3) of Regulation (EC) No 1924/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council on nutrition and health claims made on food for the use of certain generic descriptors - link
