We can help you to market the nutritional and health benefits of your food within the law as the EU health food claims law begins to bite!
Health claims about nutrition are nothing new: an apple a day keeps the doctor away, eating carrots helps you see in the dark. However, write that on a bag of carrots these days
and your local trading standards officer may instruct you to remove the words or even take you to court as the claim relating to vitamin A and night vision was not appropriately proven. That’s because health claims for nutrients in food
and supplements are subject to strict EU regulations under guidelines decreed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). This began a decade ago, then some beefed-up rules came into play in 2012. The objective was ‘to ensure that any
claim made on a food’s labelling, presentation or advertising in the European Union is clear, accurate and based on scientific evidence’.
This protects the consumer and ‘promotes innovation and ensure fair competition’.
The rules apply whether the claims originate from the product label, your website or are written on the blackboard of your local juice bar or café.
In addition to the nutritional calculation our qualified nutritionist will provide the diet and nutrition advice on the benefits of your food.
