Summary

There is a list of possible processes for each kind of food (milk, meat, vegetables). For example, egg products have only 10 possible processes (heating, cooling, freezing, breaking...)

Difference

French organic regulation specifies a list of possible processes for each kind of food, whereas EU Regulation 2092/91 does not.

Justification

Processing has an effect on the nutritional quality and taste of the final product. Organic products should be unique in both of these aspects. Therefore only certain processes should be allowed.
