Trans Fatty Acids: Scientific Progress And Labelling

Trans fatty acids (TFA) have been the subject of much discussion since IDF published a review of current knowledge in Bulletin No 377/2002. This new issue reviews the development in legal provisions for TFA in foods in the few countries that have done this, examines the scienti?c basis for such requirements, and explains the facts concerning the differing physiological effects on lipid metabolism, cardiovascular dis-ease (CHD), diabetes etc of TFA from different sources. It also consid-ers the effects of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) on lipid metabolism, diabetes, cancer and immune function, with a mention of the analyti-cal methods available. (84 references)

Food Safety Objective (FSO) & Performance Objective (PO)

Concept paper on future development of food-safety management.
This paper was developed within the IDF Standing Committee on Microbiological Hygiene. It is based on earlier work conducted by the ICMSF, discussions during the development of the Codex Code of Hygienic Practice for Milk and Milk Products, and ongoing discussions and work within the Codex Committee for Food Hygiene (CCFH), primarily in relation to the development of principles and guidelines for microbiological risk management. It aims at explaining the nature of the new risk-management concept based on FSOs and at visualizing how it may be practically implemented and could impact the planning and design of food-safety management systems.
