Abstract

A draft proposal for sweetener legislation covering the polyols and intense sweeteners has recently been submitted by the EC Commission. In this, a broad range of polyols are proposed for use according to good manufacturing practice provisions. Six intense sweeteners are to be included on the list, but the foodstuffs in which these sweeteners will be permitted and the maximum use levels will both be controlled. The implications of these provisions are discussed.
