Preview

Today three health and consumer organisations (including EHN) together with five food companies call for the urgent adoption of nutrient profiles in the context of the EU regulation on nutrition and health claims made on foods (Regulation EC 1924/2006). The nutrient profiles should have been proposed by the European Commission in January 2009 - no proposal has been forthcoming as of May 2017.
