List of Substances of the Competent Federal Government and Federal State Authorities

Plants and plant preparations are an important part of a balanced diet. Apart from using them as fruit, vegetables or cereals we can also enjoy them as ingredients in the form of herbs or spices or enjoy them in teas. More and more exotic plants are also available whose use as food in Germany was not known up to now.

Supermarkets and drugstores also sell an increasing number of products which supposedly benefit health and contain preparations which were previously used in Germany above all in pharmaceutical products.

The present category "Plants and plant parts" of the List of Substances of the Competent Federal Government and Federal State Authorities was provided to facilitate the classification and evaluation of plants and plant parts regarding their use as food or food ingredients. In addition to classification under formal legal aspects the list also provides information on the possible risks involved with certain uses. The list of substances is intended as a guideline for authorities and those placing products on the market.
