European Food Safety Authority Releases Latest Batch Of Approved Food Health Claims

June 30, 2011: 10:14 PM EST
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) published on June 30, 2011, its fifth series of scientific opinions covering 536 "general function" health benefit claims for food products. Health claims evaluated by EFSA scientists include beneficial links between dietary fibers and blood cholesterol, carbohydrate-electrolyte drinks and physical endurance, and low-sodium diets and blood pressure. EFSA disapproved health claims that the NDA Panel assessed were not specific enough, or involved food categories that were viewed as too extensive.
