On April 5, 2013, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) published a technical report titled "Dietary exposure to aluminium-containing food additives".
Following a request by the European Commission (EC), EFSA carried out a dietary exposure assessment to support the EC in preparing an EU position concerning five aluminum-containing food additives in the General Standard for Food Additives (GSFA) being discussed at the Codex Committee on Food Additives (CCFA) held from March 18-22, 2013. The five relevant additives are: aluminium ammonium sulphate, sodium aluminium phosphates (acidic and basic), sodium aluminosilicate, calcium aluminium silicate, and aluminium silicate.
EFSA also recently published two Scientific Opinions on Flavouring Group Evaluations 305 (FGE.305) and 208 (FGE.208).
The European Union's food additive use regulations are included in the International Food Additive Database.
