-Which ingredients or additives are allowed to be used and which are not for food products in Japan?
-What ingredients are categorized or controlled as food additives, and what about those considered as food ingredients? How are they controlled?
We believe these questions are of utmost importance for food business operators thinking about exporting their products to the Japanese market. Indeed, the answers to the above will differ in each country depending on the local regulatory environment, and this also holds true for Japan.
This webinar aims to interpret the regulatory requirements for the usage of food ingredients or food additives in Japan. Since there are no specific regulations for food ingredients in Japan (except for the ones having medical effects/functions), the speaker will mainly talk about the standards of use for food additives and how food ingredients with medical effects/functions are categorized or controlled.
