EU Authorizes Digestive Health Claims Of Company’s Inulin Ingredient

January 1, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
The EU Commission has approved a digestive health claim for a functional ingredients manufacturer’s chicory root inulin fiber product. German company Beneo says its customers may now use the claim: "chicory inulin contributes to normal bowel function by increasing stool frequency." In addition, the 13.5 authorization also applies to general health-related well-being claims under article 10.3. These include "promotes digestive health" or “supports a healthy and balanced digestive system." The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) reviewed the company’s scientific proofs, which included six human intervention studies that proved that consumption of Orafti Inulin increases stool frequency and supports a healthy digestive system.
