Winners and losers in the newest batch of EFSA health claims.
The European Food Safety Authority (Parma, Italy) last Friday released another batch of article 13 general function health claims. Here’s a brief overview of some of the ingredient health claims which did (and didn’t) pass the scrutiny of EFSA’s Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition, and Allegies (NDA Panel).
The agency reports that 600 additional health claims remain to be assessed and are expected to be released by June 2011. Botanical claims are still on hold, as requested by the European Commission.
