4,5-epoxy dec-2(trans)-enal is to be removed from the EU approved listThe flavouring substance 4,5-epoxy dec-2(trans)-enal is to be removed from the EU approved list using the Urgency procedure. This flavouring is reported to be predominantly used in dairy products, meat products, soups and seasonings, soft drinks, edible ices and snack foods.
At the last minute the draft legislation was changed to remove the transitional measures and so it is expected that any products containing this flavouring will have to be removed from shelves once the legislation is in force.
The legislation is now expected to be in force by mid-August.
