Application for the use of the term "Probiotico" under Regulation (EC) no. 1926/2006 (DH) - TSI response - July 2014

TSI response (PDF 183KB). TSI is of the opinion that if Italy is successful in obtaining a derogation for the term "Probiotico" then it could undermine the current European Commission's opinion on the use of the term "probiotic" and cause consumer confusion. A more sensible way forward would be to review more robustly the use of the term in the EU.
