Composite products

What are composite products?

Composite products are 'foodstuffs intended for human consumption that contain both processed products of animal origin and products of plant origin.' The processing of the primary product is an integral part of the production of the final product’. A processed product of animal origin would not be considered a composite product if the plant material has only a technical role in the processing, or is present only to add a special characteristic e.g. flavour.
