Summary

CCPAE (Cataluña) has a list of possible processes for each kind of food (milk, meat, vegetables). The CCAPE Cataluña has general organic standards revised on 17th January 2003, with 3 chapters devoted to organic food processing. It can be download in the webpage www.ccpae.org

Difference

CCPAE 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 and methods should be allowed.
