This vocabulary gathers about four hundred terms that designate the food additives that are official in Spain according to the current legislation. Each term includes the Catalan denomination and the equivalents in Spanish, French and English, as well as the E-number and the most usual functional category, which can be consulted through the thematic access (Accés temàtic). 

TERMCAT elaborated this vocabulary in 2012 on the basis of a terminological corpus transmitted by the Catalan Government Health Protection Agency and with the scientific advice from the Association of Food Additives Marketers and Manufacturers (AFCA). In the section Noves incorporacions (‘New terms’) the latest authorised food additives can be looked up.

Clicking on "Consulta de termes" (‘Term search’), terms can be looked up in three ways: using the alphabetical indexes (there is a different index for each language), using the thematic access or making simple or advanced searches in the upper space "Text de la consulta" (‘Text search’) in any of the dictionary languages.
