Avalanche™ – white without titanium dioxide
Titanium dioxide E171 will no longer be authorised as an additive by the EU as of 7 August 2022. This now also influences the legal situation in Switzerland and calls for corresponding alternatives.
We have application-specific options to colour your products white without TiO₂ according to your requirements. Our food technologists will be happy to assist you with the change.
Titanium dioxide is brilliant white and has a low reactivity. Achieving a brilliant white without the use of titanium dioxide has therefore always been a challenge. Most alternative solutions involve compromises and are only suitable for certain applications.
However, the new ruling changes the underlying premise: EFSA re-evaluated titanium dioxide E 171 on the basis of current research and cannot rule out a harmful effect on health. According to Article 2 of COMMISSION REGULATION (EU) 2022/63: "Until 7 August 2022, foods manufactured in accordance with the rules in force before 7 February 2022 may continue to be placed on the market. After that date they may remain on the market until their date of minimum durability or use-by date.". This will also be included in the European Parliament Regulation (EH) No 1333/2008. (https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/DE/TXT/PDF/?uri=CELEX:32022R0063) Switzerland will adopt this proposal.
