Joint FAO/WHO Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) work on cadmium in chocolates and cocoa-derived products

A webinar to update Codex Members and Observers on the status of work on cadmium in Codex and related JECFA evaluations with a particular focus on JECFA91 (February 2021) was held on 17 March at 12:00 – 13:30 CET.
This webinar provided an opportunity for countries/organizations which would be attending CCCF14 (May 2021) to have an insight of Codex work on cadmium in chocolates and cocoa-derived products (i.e. cocoa powder) and to hear about the rationale for bringing cadmium to the agenda of JECFA91 and the findings of this evaluation.
This information aimed to assist the discussions on cadmium in the upcoming CCCF and to inform comments on the maximum levels for cadmium in the remaining chocolate categories for consideration by the Committee under Items 5 and 6 of the Provisional Agenda (See CX/CF 21/14/1).

Download the programme here. The presentations and recording of the event is available here.


Working documents made available during 2020 to aid the further work of electronic working groups are available here. Specific links will also be provided in the corresponding updated working documents as necessary.
