On November 30, 2012, Vietnam's Ministry of Health published Circular 27, Guide for the Management of Food Additives. Replacing the previous food additive regulation from 2001, this document includes a list of 400 approved additives along with their maximum use levels in food. The regulation went into effect February 1, 2013.
The full document is available in Vietnamese only. Further information and a partial English translation can be found in USDA GAIN Report VM3007: Vietnam Revises List of Additives Approved for Use in Food.
Vietnamese regulations are not currently included in the International Food Additive Database, but are being considered for entry in 2013.
