Hi, can someone please help me with the criteria to make "No preservative" claim? In case "citric acid" has been added to a product as an acidity regulator. can one make "No preservative" claim?

Technically since citric acid is used as a preservative AND for flavour...........it is a legal grey area   you're correct either way


Please stop referring to me as Sir/sirs

I would get some legal advice on this because it is that gray area.  You may not run into regulatory trouble, but rather lawsuit trouble.
