Review of Ban on Sale of Pure and Highly Concentrated Caffeine

In December 2019 Food Standards Australia New Zealand approved the prohibition of the retail sale of foods in which total caffeine is present in a concentration of 5% or more for solid or semi-solid foods or 1% or more for liquids. This prohibition became effective on December 12, 2019 and enforcement has begun. The prohibition is aimed at powdered caffeine and other purified forms of the stimulant. FSANZ is now asking for public comments as part of the review of this prohibition. This ban does not affect the sale of cola, coffee or energy drinks.
