Food additives: EU bans stearyl tartrate

Published by AGRINFO on ; Revised

Summary

The EU has banned the use of stearyl tartrate (E 483) in food from 23 April 2024. E 483 has been removed from the list of approved food additives because EFSA could not confirm its safety for use as a food additive due to insufficient toxicological data.
