The European Margarine Association (IMACE) welcomes the adopted legislation by the European Commission (amending Part B of Annex III to Regulation (EC) No 1925/2006) setting a legal limit in the content of industrially produced trans fats in food sold to retail* and intended for the final consumer that shall not exceed 2 grams per 100 grams of fat in the final food.
IMACE members are pleased to see that the EU has finally consolidated the results of the longstanding margarine industry efforts. Over the past 20 years, in accordance with the IMACE Code of Practice on TFA, IMACE members have been driving the industry’s initiatives to reduce trans fatty acids (TFA) in margarines and spreads, via reformulation, and optimisation of processes.
