Published on: Thu, 28 Mar 2019 This study applied a procedure for the identification of potential emerging chemical risks in the food chain to substances registered under the REACH Regulation that was previously developed and tested in an EFSA‐sponsored pilot study. The selection was limited to substances that (a) were registered with a full registration, (b) met eligibility criteria (e.g. availability of a CAS number and a SMILES notation) and (c) were considered to be inside the applicability domain o...

Safety and efficacy of sorbitan monolaurate as a feed additive for all animal species

Safety and efficacy of sorbitan monolaurate as a feed additive for all animal species

Published on: Wed, 27 Mar 2019 The additive sorbitan monolaurate consists of sorbitol (and its anhydrides) esterified with fatty acids derived from coconut oil. It is intended to be used as a technological additive, functional group: emulsifier, in feedingstuffs for all animal species, at a maximum concentration of 85 mg/kg complete feed. The EFSA Panel on Additives and Products or Substances used in Animal Feed (FEEDAP) concluded that sorbitan monolaurate is safe for all animal species at the proposed ...

EU Insights Chemical mixtures awareness, understanding and risk perceptions

EU Insights Chemical mixtures awareness, understanding and risk perceptions

Published on: Mon, 25 Mar 2019 EFSA defines ‘chemical mixtures’ as ‘several substances which may have combined effects on the body from their combined exposures’. There are already some methodologies for assessing risks from combined exposure to groups of chemicals, and EFSA together with European partners is developing methodologies to assess the risk from exposure to combinations of chemicals in food. However, consumers' understanding and views on this topic have not been documented. This poses signif...
