Use of Green Tea Extract as a Supplemental Ingredient in Foods

Health Canada announced modifications to the List of Permitted Supplemental Ingredients and added Green Tea Extract (EGCG and catechins) for use in supplemented foods (NOM/ADM SI-007). Specific conditions, cautionary statements on labels, and dosage limits were introduced, with a maximum single dose of 100 mg EGCG and 200 mg total catechins. The daily limits are set at 300 mg for EGCG and 600 mg for catechins. In Europe, a similar regulation (Annex III of the Regulation (EC) No 1925/2006) outlines requirements (use and label warnings) for green tea extracts, limiting daily EGCG intake to less than 800 mg. The regulations came into force on January 11, 2024, with a transition period until December 31, 2025, allowing existing products to comply with the updated rules for continued market access.

In 2025, Italy will adhere to the European Medicines Anti-Counterfeiting Directive (EU FMD), mandating a unique identification of drug packages

On February 9th, 2025, Italy will adhere to the European Medicines Anti-Counterfeiting Directive (EU FMD), mandating a unique identification of drug packages and implementing tamper-evident measures to ensure authenticity from manufacturing to dispensing to the final patient. The Italian regulatory system will have to transpose the directive and potentially expand its scope — the complete replacement of the Tamper Evident is under discussion. Serialization projects are intricate and involve various functions within Marketing Authorization Holder (MAH) companies and their business partners. The EU FMD Directive assigns specific responsibilities to wholesalers within the territory.To meet this challenge, it is essential to be prepared. LifeBee, ProductLife Group Digital expertise center, supports companies in fully understanding this legislation’s implications and ensuring full project compliance.
