Much Ado About TiO2

This episode provides an update on recent activity involving the use of food additive titanium dioxide (TiO2). It includes a brief background on the use of TiO2 followed by the recent inquiries into the safety of TiO2 in France and Europe, and a recent statement by FDA confirming the safety of the food additive. Dr. Ivan Boyer, a staff toxicologist at Keller and Heckman, shares his insights on the scientific data and the deficiencies in the EFSA assessment that underpinned the recent European ban on TiO2 as a food additive.
