Course Overview

Does your alternative protein need to be authorised?

Alternative proteins can often fall under the novel food definition and thus require authorisation. This masterclass will help you decide whether your product needs to undergo an assessment by the European Authorities, or whether it can be placed directly on the market. If an authorisation is needed, we will outline the registration process and provide some practical examples.

Why does this topic matter?

Alternative proteins can often fall under the novel food definition and thus require authorisation which may seem complex and often difficult to interpret.

How could this masterclass help you understand the regulation?

At this masterclass you will receive practical advice on determining the novelty of your protein, as well as find out what should be the next steps if it is novel.
