Summary

SKAL has included the following specific additives to Annex VI for cheese processing: Calcium chloride (CaCl2) and hydrochloric acid (HCl).

Difference

Norms for the processing of products that are not within the scope of the EU Regulation 2092/91 must correspond as much as possible with the processing standards in the EU Regulation. Exceptions are made for additives for cheese, non-food, dog and cat feed, wine and meat products.

Justification

The EU Regulation has not regulated the processing of cheese products in detail. Since the cheese processing demands several additives, these should be permitted in general.

EU Regulation

Annex VI. Processing > Ingredients of non-agricultural origin - Annex VI A
Annex I. Principles of organic production and processing > Product handling, storage, processing, transportation and packaging - not in EC Reg > Special product group processing standards
