Novel foods and food supplements: understanding the European legal framework

All the keys to understand the novel food status in the European legal framework

A novel food is defined in Regulation (EU) 2015/2283 as a food for which human consumption was negligible in the European Union before 15 May 1997, when the first novel food regulation came into force with Regulation (EC) 258/97.

Novel foods may not be placed on the market or used in food for human consumption until they are included in the European Union list.
