Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2022/2182 of 30 August 2022 amending Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/1798 as regards the lipid and magnesium requirements for total diet replacement for weight control was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 9 November 2022 and is entered into force on 29 November 2022 (without transition period).
This regulation amends Annex I of the delegated regulation (EU) 2017/1798:
- Deletion of the minimum linoleic acid content
- Reduction of the minimum alpha-linolenic acid content “The alpha-linolenic acid contained in total diet replacement for weight control products shall not be less than 0,8 g for the total daily ration” (instead of 1.4g previously)
