Global variations in regulation and consumers’ increased demand for clean and safe products drive ingredient choices. Titanium dioxide (TiO2) has been a focus for several years, as especially French authorities have been investigating the possible negative health effects of nano-particles in food products.
From January 2020, TiO2 will be banned in France, which is supported by many European consumer organizations. But there is still a need for a whitening agent throughout the food industry.
