Jennifer Guild Discusses Changes in Food Ingredient Regulations
Louisville, KY, USA — Jennifer Guild, regulatory expert and DDW’s Global Food Science & Regulatory Manager, discusses recent changes in food ingredient regulations in this episode of DDW’s Expert Answers Series.
We asked Ms. Guild how the food ingredient regulatory environment is changing from a customer’s perspective. “Food additives are regulated globally but those global regulations are not harmonized so the challenge is finding a food additive that you can use in a global application,” Guild says.
As an alternative, companies could develop food or beverage products “that are region-specific based on the regional regulations governing that food additive.”
