NORWAY STRENGTHENS RULES ON ADDITION OF NUTRIENTS AND USE OF OTHER SUBSTANCES

A recent Norwegian amending act creates additional rules on the addition of vitamins and minerals and the use of other substances in foods. The positive list of permitted other substances is also applicable to use in food supplements. The amendment makes that Norway is taking a stricter approach on the addition of vitamins and minerals to foods than the general European Union approach.
