On July 12, Brazil's National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) published two proposals concerning flavoring substances for use in foods and beverages:
- Consulta Pública No. 226: Establishes procedures for the approval of regional plant species used as flavoring substances
- Consulta Pública No. 227: Establishes the criteria required for the provisional authorization of the marketing of food and beverages that contain flavorings from regional plant species
Comments on both proposals are due on September 16, 2016.
