In the recent 1993 round of regulatory meetings, the joint FAO/WHO JECFA awarded a temporary restricted ADI to Processed Eucheuma Seaweed (PES); the Codex Committee on Food Additives and Contaminants ruled that PES is different from carrageenan; and the UK Food Advisory Committee has now confirmed that studies on carrageenan requested in 1992 are still required; that carrageenan should not be used in food for infants and young children, and that the specification for carrageenan should be tightened. Indicates the changes resulting from these separate regulatory considerations.
