EU proposals to change the status of creatine have been withdrawn
after lobbying from an industry trade organisation.

The European Commission has outlined proposals to add a new category for creatine monohydrate to the list of ingredients which may be used in foods for particular nutritional purposes (PARNUTS).

However industry lobbyists the Whitehouse Consultancy warned officials that this would have had the effect of banning all other types of creatine from sports nutrition products.

At a meeting in Brussels last Friday, the Commission announced that it was withdrawing the proposal, according to the consultants.

"The Commission accepted that the approach it had proposed would have the effect of banning other ingredients currently used as sources of creatine (such as creatine citrate), which was not the intention,"​ said a statement from the Whitehouse Consultancy.
