An update has been published on the European Commission's discussion paper on health claims on botanical substances used in foods.
The assessment of health claims for botanical substances by the European Food Safety Authority was put on hold by the European Commission. During this pause, the European Commission has carried out an internal reflection and consultations on the approach for assessment of health claims for botanical substances. The European Commission is now seeking Member States’ views through a series of questions within the discussion paper.
The discussion paper is available on request, by emailing the nutrition and health claims mail box
