Health benefits of foods: how can you communicate it? – Presented by Alie de Boer, Assistant Professor in nutritional sciences and food law, Maastricht University Campus Venlo, at the Healthy Nutrition Conference, 27 June 2018, Brightlands Campus, Venlo, The Netherlands.
Since 2006, all claims on what a food product contains or what effects are elicited by eating the food, are regulated in the European Union. In this presentation, you will be updated about the regulation regarding these nutrition and health claims, as well as its consequences. The presentation will provide insights into the use of such claims as marketing and information tools. The presentation will hereby introduce how developments in nutritional science and food law are affecting each other.
