France: France Plans to ban Titanium Dioxide in Food Products

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

France’s National Assembly passed an amendment banning the use, import and marketing of any food product containing titanium dioxide (TiO2) as a food additive as a component of France’s farm and food bill currently under debate. A 2017 French scientific study highlighted the potential carcinogen risks of nanoparticles of Ti02. However, EFSA stated in 2016 that Ti02 poses no health concerns. Analysts believe the final vote of the law scheduled for mid-summer 2018 will endorse the TiO2 ban.
