Restrictions on importing lanolin-derived D3 into the EU



As you may remember, about a year ago, there was a potential change in legislation limiting the import of lanolin-derived D3 into the European Union (EU). Since then, there have been some key changes.

What’s changed?

As of the 27th of June 2022, imports of lanolin-derived vitamin D3 from third countries (including India & China) will be formally considered a highly refined product of animal origin (POAO). This means that to be able to import non-plant origin vitamin D3 into the EU, you will be required to have an export health certificate and controls at the border will be in place. 

How to avoid these changes?

The most effective way of avoiding these changes would be to switch the supply of any lanolin-derived D3 to our plant origin Vitamin D3V. 

Our Vitamin D3V is Cholecalciferol of 100% plant origin, produced from Algae. It is available in various formats and strengths, perfect for multiple applications, including foods, drinks and nutraceuticals. Our Vitamin D3V also has many accreditations and certifications, including Vegan Society, KLB & OK Kosher, and Halal approved.

Below you can see the formats in which our D3V is available, and you can also download our brochure.
