Just need to clarify regarding the sulphite declaration in product label. Based on below article published by BRC, sulphite used as preservative regardless of concentration/amount shall be declared on label (according to sulphite decision tree; Page 8).
But according to published EU regulation (refer to attachment 2) "Under allergen labelling legislation, when sulphites are present at above 10 mg/kg/litre in the finished product, whether or not they have a technological function, a clear declaration of sulphites and/ or sulphur dioxide is always required."
Both guidelines are quite confusing.
On our current operation, we intentionally added sulphite during in-process of product as preservative but the level of sulphite on finished product is <10 ppm. Should we declare it or not?
Hoping someone can clarify this to me.
