The Titanium Dioxide industry is evaluating the European Food Safety Authority’s (EFSA) opinion on E171

06 May 2021 – The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) published its opinion on the safety of titanium dioxide (TiO2) as a food additive (E171).

The Titanium Dioxide Manufacturers Association (TDMA) is currently carefully evaluating the ESFA’s opinion to better understand the logic behind the outcome.

The TDMA has fulfilled all data requests from the EFSA, and has also contributed extensive new scientific evidence that confirms the safety of E171.

The TDMA welcomes the opportunity to engage with the EFSA  and other European authorities to provide additional evidence and data to address potential safety concerns.
