Summary

The KRAV standards accept 28 additives for food processing (KRAV standards appendix 7).

Difference

EU Regulation 2092/91 allows 47 additives for food processing. Among these are sodium nitrate and potassium nitrate. The KRAV standards allow fewer additives. Nitrates are not allowed for meat products. The number of processing aids allowed is about the same for the KRAV standards and the EU Regulation.

Justification

Many consumers are interested in organic food because fewer additives are used.
