Novel ingredients

Novel ingredients

Novel food and food ingredients are foods that have not previously been consumed to a significant degree in the EU before 1997. Novel foods are often emerging ingredients or existing ingredients that are being used in a different way for a new use. Novel ingredients may provide innovative solutions for delivering nutritious products that meet dietary needs or requirements to reformulate to remove allergens (e.g. dairy or gluten free).

We are also working on addressing the industry need for anticipating and responding to regulatory and technical changes such as approval of new ingredients or approval for existing ingredients to be used in new categories, and we have already carried out extensive work on novel ingredients such as chia seed, insects and ancient grains.

We can help you look into the potential of novel ingredients and provide clear information on if and how they can be used in specific products.
