Foods for Sport People

The Annex of the Framework Directive indicates that specific rules will be set out by EU legislation to cover foods intended to meet the expenditure of intense muscular effort, especially for sportsmen (foods for sports people).

No rules have been set so far.

What will the new Regulation 609/2013 on Food for Specific Groups (FSG) do for foods for sportspeople from 20 July 2016?

The Regulation does not introduce rules on foods for sportspeople. However, the Regulation foresees that a report should be prepared by the Commission in order to analyse the necessity to establish special compositional and labelling rules.
