Europeans turn down health claims
More cheery regulatory news. To the consternation of food companies, the European Food Safety Authority has turned down 8 of 9 petitions for approval of health claims on food labels, largely because of lack of evidence. For a while, at least, Europeans won’t be confronted with food packages promising them that they will lose weight if they eat dairy foods. FDA take notice!
