Regulatory agencies are increasingly active in ensuring the safety of food additives used in our daily lives. This has put Titanium Dioxide in the spotlight, as safety concerns of this well-known food additive, continue to be at the forefront. As this ingredient comes under increased consumer and regulatory scrutiny as an additive in food products, it has created a need for a film coating that is free from Titanium Dioxide, for use in dietary & nutritional supplements, as well as pharmaceutical tablets.
For a clarity on this topic, Kerry invites you to watch the recording webinar where our experts will discuss the current regulations, trends and alternative solutions for using Titanium Dioxide in Film Coatings.
