While the FSAI Advice Line provides advice and support on the topic of food additives, it does not provide advice on the authorised use of specific additives in specific food. Please do not send us queries requesting this service. It is the responsibility of the food business owner to ensure compliance with food law by accessing the food additives information provided on our website and also through the European Commission’s database on food additives which serves as a tool to provide information about the food additives approved for use in food in the EU and their conditions of use.
