Description:
PARNUTs are specifically produced foodstuffs designed to suit the particular nutritional need of specific consumer groups. They are ‘clearly distinguishable from foodstuffs for normal consumption, are suitable for their claimed nutritional purposes and are marketed in such a way as to indicate such suitability’. A wide variety of PARNUTs exist on the European market. Currently, PARNUTs are regulated by a Framework Directive (2009/39/EC) and specific pieces of related legislation (five Directives and one Regulation) which set out specific rules for certain categories of PARNUTs. To simplify the regulation of PARNUTs, the European Commission proposed changes to the legislation governing PARNUTs in November 2011. These changes involved repealing the Framework Directive (2009/39/EC) and regulating PARNUTs under various pieces of food legislation. It was proposed that three specific Directives (Infant Formula and Follow-on Formula, Food Intended for Infants and Young Children and Foods for Special Medical Purposes (FSMPs)) would be combined into a single new Regulation called Food Intended for Infants and Young Children and Food for Special Medical Purposes.
