Abstract

Due to global trend in healthy food from farm to fork which compromises human health, food safety, and environmental protection, consumers today are more sensitive to contaminant-free foods of animal origin. These contaminants are mainly fertilizers, biotechnological additives, agricultural products, pesticide residues, veterinary medicines, chemical additives, genetically modified products, and contaminants arising from product processing, maintenance, transport, and storage. To increase both the quantity of animal products and the hygiene quality and standards of those goods, feed additives are being widely used. The ability to identify additive substances used in animal nutrition—in both feed and feedstuffs—is very important when investigating the effects of these substances on human health. In Turkey, nutraceuticals are listed as “feed/food supplements” in Law on Veterinary Services Plant Health Food and Feed. All legislation and guidelines being implemented for this purpose in Turkey comply with European Union legislation. This chapter provides information on regulations pertaining to the approval of feed additives used in Turkey, as well as those pertaining to the launch and control of those additives.
