On 06.05.2021, EFSA published a new assessment on titanium dioxide. The authority comes to the conclusion that titanium dioxide can no longer be considered as safe when used as a food additive. Titanium dioxide is widely used as a white colorant in cosmetics, medicines and also in food supplements. Since a withdrawal of the approval is to be expected in the future, it is advisable to carry out reformulations as soon as possible.
