Swedish authorities have applied for special EU protection for cinnamons buns, skimmed milk, and St. Lucia sweet buns.

Applied for EU protection for Swedish cuisine

Sweden has applied for special EU protection for a range of culinary treats. The cinnamon bun (kanelboller), Swedish skimmed milk and St. Lucia sweet buns (lussekatter) have all been included in this application to EU authorities to receive a special status.

This status would mean that recipes cannot be changed but also that the production of these coffee break delights could not be moved from Sweden.

The St. Lucia sweet bun is a common sight in the lead-up to Christmas, consumed in many Swedish and Norwegian households in Advent.

Sweden already has three food products with EU-protected designation of origin including Bothnian Bay roe (Kalix Löjrom), Scanian “spit cake” (Spettekaka), and Svecia cheese.
