European process for the assessment of scientific support for claims on foods (PASSCLAIM)

Contor, L; Aggett, P J and Asp, Nils-Georg LU (2005) In Food Australia 57(9). p.392-396
Abstract
Much attention is now being paid to health and nutrition claims for foods. There are already many food products on the market with claims appealing to consumers about health effects beyond provision of basic nutrients. One important basis for claims is the increasingly documented effect of dietary components on body functions. There are three main reasons for assessing the scientific substantiation of claims: to support consumer confidence in foods with claims, to satisfy regulatory requirements, and to promote fair market competition.
