To set the Swiss regulation in accordance with the relevant European regulation (DIRECTIVE 2012/12/EU OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 19 April 2012 amending Council Directive 2001/112/EC relating to fruit juices and certain similar products intended for human consumption) the provisions on orange juice were modified. This modification results in a deviation to the Codex Alimentarius "General Standard for Fruit Juices and Nectars" (CODEX STAN 247-2005 chap. 3.1.2, letter e) which allows juice of Citrus reticulata and/or Hybrides with reticulata to be present in orange juice up to 10% m/m of soluble dry matter.
The list of permitted substances for the treatment of fruit juices is amended with pea proteins, which are already allowed for wine. There are no scientific or other reasons not to allow these proteins in fruit juices.
This is in derogation to the directive 2012/12/EU.
