Organic: What's in a name? (1/116)

The organic foods industry is booming: by one estimate, the market for organic foods is worth $4 billion annually and is expected to grow at a rate of more than 24% per year. Faced with the threat of pesticide exposures and other food safety problems, many consumers are turning to organic foods in hopes of finding a healthy alternative, but there is currently no consistency in organic food labeling and no guarantee that foods labeled as organic are actually grown and processed in a purely organic fashion. There is also controversy about whether the label "organic" covers such new technologies as irradiation and genetic engineering. As part of the 1990 Farm Bill, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is working to develop a proposed rule on organic foods. The rule would regulate the allowable methods, practices, and substances used in producing and handling crops and their processed products. The first draft of the proposed rule, released in December 1997, met with unprecedented opposition, which centered around the fact that the proposal appeared to virtually ignore the recommendations of a standards board formed to assist in the rule's development. Other criticism opposed three practices put forward for comment by the USDA: irradiation, genetic engineering, and the use of sewage sludge in farming. Due to the vehemence of the opposition to its original proposal, the USDA has decided to rewrite the proposed rule. In preparation for that proposal, the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service released three issue papers in October 1998 for public comment. The 10,000-plus comments received in response to those papers will be incorporated into the second draft proposal, due out later this year.  (+info)

Inulin and oligofructose: safe intakes and legal status. (2/116)

Inulin and oligofructose are a significant part of the daily diet of most of the world's population. Daily intakes for the U.S. and Europe have been estimated at up to 10 g, specifically 1-4 g for the 97th percentile in the U.S. Because both inulin and oligofructose are macroingredients, it is difficult to apply classical toxicology tests. Although some high dose animal tests have been performed, none have revealed any toxic effects. The safety of inulin and oligofructose for use in foods was evaluated by many legal authorities worldwide. As a result, both inulin and oligofructose are accepted in most countries as food ingredients that can be used without restrictions in food formulations. In the U.S., a panel of experts performed a generally accepted as safe (GRAS) Self-Affirmation Evaluation in 1992 and concluded similarly. At high doses, increased flatulence and osmotic pressure can cause intestinal discomfort. These doses vary widely from person to person and also depend on the type of food in which inulin or oligofructose is incorporated. With regard to labeling, both inulin and oligofructose are gradually being accepted as "dietary fibers" in most countries around the world. The mention of their "bifidogenic effect" on food labels has also been legally accepted in several countries.  (+info)

Response of red blood cell folate to intervention: implications for folate recommendations for the prevention of neural tube defects. (3/116)

Committees worldwide have set almost identical folate recommendations for the prevention of the first occurrence of neural tube defects (NTDs). We evaluate these recommendations by reviewing the results of intervention studies that examined the response of red blood cell folate to altered folate intake. Three options are suggested to achieve the extra 400 microg folic acid/d being recommended by the official committees: increased intake of folate-rich foods, dietary folic acid supplementation, and folic acid fortification of food. A significant increase in foods naturally rich in folates was shown to be a relatively ineffective means of increasing red blood cell folate status in women compared with equivalent intakes of folic acid-fortified food, presumably because the synthetic form of the vitamin is more stable and more bioavailable. Although folic acid supplements are highly effective in optimizing folate status, supplementation is not an effective strategy for the primary prevention of NTDs because of poor compliance. Thus, food fortification is seen by many as the only option likely to succeed. Mandatory folic acid fortification of grain products was introduced recently in the United States at a level projected to provide an additional mean intake of 100 microg folic acid/d, but some feel that this policy does not go far enough. A recent clinical trial predicted that the additional intake of folic acid in the United States will reduce NTDs by >20%, whereas 200 microg/d would be highly protective and is the dose also shown to be optimal in lowering plasma homocysteine, with possible benefits in preventing cardiovascular disease. Thus, an amount lower than the current target of an extra 400 microg/d may be sufficient to increase red blood cell folate to concentrations associated with the lowest risk of NTDs, but further investigation is warranted to establish the optimal amount.  (+info)

Functional foods: an ecologic perspective. (4/116)

A functional food is defined as any food or food ingredient that may provide a health benefit beyond that conferred by the nutrients the food contains. As nutrition scientists move into this arena, they must build on the wealth of information that already exists in plant biology. In particular, the evolutionary and physiologic bases for the production of secondary plant chemicals in plants must be considered in order to plan meaningful experiments for testing the functionality of these chemical compounds for humans. One problem that may arise is that in using the term functional food, the meaning may be lost in the continued proliferation of related terms used in product marketing. The new National Institutes of Health Office of Dietary Supplements addressed some of these issues as it developed the operating definitions described in this report.  (+info)

Functional foods: the Food and Drug Administration perspective. (5/116)

Because the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) does not provide a statutory definition of functional foods, the Food and Drug Administration has no authority to establish a formal regulatory category for such foods. The primary determinant of the regulatory status of a food is its intended use, which is determined largely by the label and labeling information accompanying the product. This information includes nutrient information, nutrient content claims, and various types of health claims. In marketing these foods, manufacturers may come under one of several existing regulatory options. The first decision manufacturers will make that will help determine their product's regulatory status is whether the product is a food or a drug. Thus, manufacturers and retailers have a range of legal and regulatory categories in which their products may be classified. This article describes the definitions provided in the FFDCA for a drug and a food, the safety and labeling requirements of various food categories, and types of possible claims for dietary supplements.  (+info)

Soft drink "pouring rights": marketing empty calories to children. (6/116)

Healthy People 2010 objectives call for meals and snacks served in schools to contribute to overall diets that meet federal dietary guidelines. Sales in schools of foods and drinks high in calories and low in nutrients undermine this health objective, as well as participation in the more nutritious, federally sponsored, school lunch programs. Competitive foods also undermine nutrition information taught in the classroom. Lucrative contracts between school districts and soft drink companies for exclusive rights to sell one brand are the latest development in the increasing commercialization of school food. These contracts, intended to elicit brand loyalty among young children who have a lifetime of purchases ahead of them, are especially questionable because they place schools in the position of "pushing" soft drink consumption. "Pouring rights" contracts deserve attention from public health professionals concerned about the nutritional quality of children's diets.  (+info)

Consideration of possible legislation within existing regulatory frameworks. (7/116)

Legislation on a particular food or on a particular claim to be used in connection with a food require a definition of the food and unequivocal requirements for the use of the claim. The definitions of prebiotics and probiotics presently place these terms between the categories for conventional foods and foods for special dietary uses. Because probiotics and prebiotics, as a group, do not fulfill the criteria for special dietary uses, they have to comply with the rules and laws for conventional foods even if the requirements for the use of the terms prebiotic and probiotic include effects on body functions. These effects on the health and wellness of the consumer and to stimulatory activity, eg, body defense mechanisms, can be used in claims that should underline the importance of the total dietary pattern. It is suggested that setting up rules for the use of the terms prebiotic and probiotic is preferable to creating new food standards.  (+info)

Market potential for probiotics. (8/116)

"Functional foods" as a marketing term was initiated in Japan in the late 1980s and is used to describe foods fortified with ingredients capable of producing health benefits. This concept is becoming increasingly popular with consumers because of a heightened awareness of the link between health, nutrition, and diet. Food manufacturers are enthusiastic about developing such products because the added ingredients give increased value to food. The global market for functional foods in the coming years is predicted to grow rapidly. Although Japan currently accounts for about one-half of this market, the fastest rate of growth is expected to be in the United States. Probiotic products represent a strong growth area within the functional foods group and intense research efforts are under way to develop dairy products into which probiotic organisms such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species are incorporated. Such probiotic foods may modulate gut microbial composition, thereby leading to improved gut health, for example, through improved tolerance to lactose in lactose-intolerant individuals or improved resistance to pathogenic bacteria. Large numbers of viable microorganisms are likely to be required in the food product, which should be consumed regularly to experience the health effect. The probiotic market, especially dairy products such as yogurts and fermented milks, has experienced rapid growth in Europe. The long-term exploitation of probiotics as health promoters is dependent on several factors, including sound, scientifically proven clinical evidence of health-promoting activity; accurate consumer information; effective marketing strategies; and, above all, a quality product that fulfills consumer expectations.  (+info)

Following an application from Vifor Ltd, submitted for authorisation of a health claim pursuant to Article 14 of Regulation (EC) No 1924/2006 via the Competent Authority of the United Kingdom, the EFSA Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies (NDA) was asked to deliver an opinion on the scientific substantiation of a health claim related to Equazen eye q® and improving reading ability. The Panel considers that Equazen eye q®, a combination of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) (at a weight ratio of 9:3:1), which is the subject of the health claim, is sufficiently characterised. Improving reading ability is a beneficial physiological effect. The applicant provided four human intervention studies that investigated the effect of Equazen eye q® on reading ability in children. No conclusions can be drawn from three of these studies for the scientific substantiation of the claim. The fourth study does not show an effect of Equazen eye q ...
The Problem of Absoluteness-Relativeness of Scientific Cognition and The General Method of Substantiation. A. Voin Abstracts It is considered phenomena of science, which gave birth to the problem and which the analytics (the logic positivists) tried unsuccessfully to overcome and the post positivists used them for substantiating their conclusions about relativeness of scientific cognition. The general method of substantiation, which rational science uses to substantiate its theories, is expounded. It is shown, that this method is unchangeable through changing of scientific paradigms, substantiating layers and so on. Possessing by science of this method divides it from non-science and pseudoscience and provides its especial epistemological status. On base of this method, rational explanation of above mentioned phenomena of science is given, and argumentation of the post positivists is refuted. Does difference between science and non-science exist in principle and if it does, what is it? Does ...
Following an application from Specialised Nutrition Europe (formerly IDACE), submitted pursuant to Article 14 of Regulation (EC) No 1924/2006 via the Competent Authority of France, the EFSA Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies (NDA) was asked to deliver an opinion on the scientific substantiation of a health claim related to iodine and contribution to normal cognitive development. The food constituent, iodine, which is the subject of the health claim, is sufficiently characterised. Contribution to normal cognitive development is a beneficial physiological effect for infants and young children. A claim on iodine and contribution to normal cognitive and neurological function in the general population has already been assessed with a favourable outcome. In addition, there is a large body of evidence indicating a crucial role for iodine in growth and development. The Panel notes the well established role of iodine in preventing iodine deficiency disorders such as retarded mental and ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Validation of a modified PCR-based method for identifying mutant restricted ovulator chickens. T2 - Substantiation of genotypic classification by phenotypic traits. AU - Elkin, R. G.. AU - Zhong, Y.. AU - Porter, R. E.. AU - Walzem, R. L.. PY - 2003/4. Y1 - 2003/4. N2 - Upon photostimulation, restricted ovulator (RO) female chickens exhibit endogenous hyperlipidemia, develop atherosclerotic lesions, and generally fail to lay eggs. This phenotype results from a point mutation in the gene specifying the very low density lipoprotein receptor (VLDLR), whose protein product normally mediates the massive oocytic uptake of egg yolk precursors from the circulation. Taking advantage of the single base change in the mutant VLDLR allele, a PCR-based method for the rapid identification of RO chickens was developed at the Biocenter and University of Vienna, Austria. However, this procedure was incompletely validated because phenotypic data were not obtained and conventional progeny testing of ...

1 & 2. Upheld. The ASA asked Medical Thermal Imaging to supply robust clinical evidence to support the claim that their product could detect abnormalities before mammography and that it was medically recognised. This information was not supplied.. Because the advertiser did not provide robust evidence to substantiate the claim that thermography could detect active breast abnormalities which also compared its efficacy with mammography or that it was medically recognised, we concluded the ad was misleading.. The ad breached CAP Code (Edition 12) rules 3.1 3.1 Marketing communications must not materially mislead or be likely to do so.

The Agency was created in 2001 based on a report by Professor James,[3] issued after several high-profile outbreaks and deaths from foodborne illness. It was felt that it was inappropriate to have one government department, the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, responsible for both the health of the farming and food processing industries and for food safety. Uniquely for a UK Government department, the Food Standards Act gave the Agency the statutory right to publish the advice it gives to Ministers - and as a signal of its independence it declared that it would invariably do so. From its inception, the Agency declared that it would take no decisions about food policy except in open Board meetings accessible to the public. Since 2003, these meetings have been webcast live, enabling consumers to see the decision-making process in action. Each Board meeting concludes with a Q&A session in which web viewers can question the Board or its Executive directly. In 2006, the Wine Standards ...
The American sweets at Hopscotch are genuine imports. As such, most were destined for the US domestic market and the food labelling reflects this.. The requirements of the US Federal Food & Drug Administration (FDA) differ to our EEC food regulations. We endeavour to ensure that the sweets sold at Hopscotch contain permitted EEC levels of food additives and colours. However, the US labelling does not comply with EEC and UK Foods Standards Agency regulations.. In particular, many of the sweets here contain colours that may have an adverse effect on activity and attention in children. These are:. ...

Desai: Claim substantiation is a very powerful theory, based on FTC standards. Standard isnt just we think it; can require certain kinds of tests. He had one case where someone paid for a 30-person test and market research and said that proved the product caused weight loss. Our claim: we are not acting on behalf of the FTC, but litigating under the UCL. We arent saying we need the same level of proof, but rather saying that under California (as well as NY and some other states) law the standard isnt deception but rather likely to deceive, a much lower standard, and thats where we try to get in this idea of lack of substantiation. (Ok, I think I see the conceptual disconnect here. Ps really need to be making the Lanham Act move of identifying the necessarily implied claim of substantiation--which is a straight-up false message received by a consumer as a result of her receipt of the explicit scientific-sounding claim--rather than just saying the scientific-sounding claim is ...

ADR Substantiation: Drug safety issues pose serious health threats to the population and constitute a major cause of mortality worldwide. Due to the prominent implications to both public health and the pharmaceutical industry, it is of great importance to unravel the molecular mechanisms by which an adverse drug reaction can be potentially elicited. These mechanisms can be investigated by placing the pharmaco-epidemiologically detected adverse drug reaction in an information-rich context and by exploiting all currently available biomedical knowledge to substantiate it. We present a computational framework for the biological annotation of potential adverse drug reactions. The proposed framework seeks to provide a biological explanation (signal substantiation) by exploring mechanistic connections that might explain why a drug produces a specific adverse reaction. The mechanistic connections include the activity of the drug, related compounds and drug metabolites on protein targets, the association ...
This paper deals with the substantiation that a multivariate response self- or trace-driven simulation model, within its domain of applicability, possesses a satisfactory range of accuracy consistent with the intended application of the model. A methodology is developed by using simultaneous confidence intervals to do this substantiation with respect to the mean behavior of a simulation model that represents an observable system. A trade off analysis can be performed and judgement decisions can be made as to what data collection budget to allocate, what data collection method to use, how many observations to collect on each of the model and system response variables, and what confidence level to choose for producing the range of accuracy with satisfactory lengths. The methodology is illustrated for self-driven steady-state and trace-driven terminating simulations. ...

At least 700,000 eggs implicated in the fipronil scandal have been imported into the United Kingdom, far more than initial estimates, the Food Standards Agency has confirmed.. The Food Standards Agency said products affected in the United Kingdom were mainly processed foods in which egg is one ingredient among many others, mostly used in sandwich fillings or other chilled foods.. In France, about 250,000 affected eggs have sold in the country since April and authorities say products containing eggs from contaminated farms will be taken off the shelves. While some European countries eggs containing Fipronil residues have been sold as fresh eggs, this is not the case in the UK.. This is more than 33 times the 21,000 first estimated, the Food Standards Agency has said.. The U.K. raised its estimate of eggs contaminated by the unauthorized pesticide fipronil, with the outbreak believed to have affected some products made by major supermarkets.. Almost 250,000 eggs contaminated with an insecticide ...

Then CSPI shifted their attention to the media: The dietary supplement industry is full of snake oil salesmen, CSPI executive director Michael F. Jacobson told The Daily News. Its frustrating to see so many deceptive claims for dietary supplements. CSPI is threatening to sue Bayer over their One a Day line of nutritional supplements. They say Bayers health claims [fail to] satisfy the FTCs requirements for substantiation in order to be lawful. The FTC has recently required a higher standard of proof for companies making health-related claims. Unfortunately, media outlets as august as The New York Times gobbled up the story. However, the FTC required a higher standard of proof for only those few companies, and enforced that standard via litigation and a consent decree for each company. Its not a regulation that applies to every company, much to the disappointment of FTC and apparently CSPI-but it is a deeply troubling precedent. ...
My neighborhood grocery store is displaying a wall of Cheerios boxes with this banner over the inevitable heart: You can lower your cholesterol 4% in 6 weeks (see back for details). I immediately turned to the back to learn that Cheerios is the only leading cold cereal clinically proven to lower cholesterol.

An interesting approach to documentation and sourcing. You accept a hypothesis (in this case that Ronald Reagan ended the Cold War), then refuse to tolerate any alternative explanations, no matter how well grounded. You claim that such liberal views require substantiation, and yet, when substantiation for them is offered, you excise the substantiation altogether. Ill note that no documentation whatsoever is offered in support of the hypothesis that Reagan brought the end of communism in Eastern Europe. I should add that liberal is a very misleading and damning characterization of these views, since the thesis that Reagan wasnt responsible for the fall of communism derives more from any number of factors in which Reagan had no bearing whatsoever. The references provided and then unceremoniously removed without explanation explain these in more detail. For instance, Jan Kubiks work on the emergence of civil society and Solidarity in Poland shows how important the Catholic Church and ...
On October 31, 2000, the Food and Drug Administration responded to the third of four proposed health claims for dietary supplements that were the subject of the infamous Pearson decision with a new twist in the health claims arena: a qualified health claim approved solely for a dietary supplement, and thus far only for the alleged relationship between omega-3 fatty acids and coronary heart disease (CHD). The case of Pearson and Shaw v. Shalala challenged FDAs 1993 decision to deny four health claims: antioxidant vitamins and certain cancers, omega-3 fatty acids and CHD, fiber and colorectal cancer, and dietary supplements as a superior source of folic acid for reducing the risk of neural tube defects. Ultimately, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit found for the plaintiffs and directed FDA to reconsider authorization of these claims; further clarify the significant scientific agreement standard it requires for authorization of new health claims, and consider whether health ...

The new FDA research study by Brenda M. Derby and Alan S. Levy, which does not reflect an official agency position, found that written qualifications expressing scientific uncertainty failed to significantly reduce consumer confidence in questionable health claims. By contrast, a report card style graphic may successfully communicate some distinctions in levels of scientific certainty. Unfortunately, however, a report card with a B or C rating seemed to increase consumer confidence in the health claim by comparison with no report card at all -- even though having no report card means the claim meets FDAs stronger standard of significant scientific agreement. The authors speculated that the qualified health claims report cards might work better if the graphic appeared on all products with health claims, even those that rate an A ...

The new Good Manufacturing Practice regulations for dietary supplements require that manufacturers with shelf life statements on their labels have appropriate scientific substantiation. However, expiration dates are not required by the rule, and the cGMPs released in June provide little to no guidance as to what qualifies as scientific substantiation. Manufacturers are left wondering whether it is in their best interest to provide a shelf life statement and, if so, what the appropriate testing programs are for substantiating shelf life - a daunting and difficult task for manufacturers and marketers of herbal products. To help manufacturers and marketers comply with GMPs, the American Herbal Products Association offers an information-packed tele-seminar, Shelf Life Statements on Dietary Supplement Labels..

Foods commonly considered junk foods include salted snack foods, gum, candy, sweet desserts, fried fast food, and sugary carbonated beverages. [5] Many foods such as hamburgers, pizza, and tacos can be considered either healthy or junk food depending on their ingredients and preparation methods with the more highly processed items usually falling under the junk food category.

By Riëtte van Laack -. As previously reported, on Dec. 8, 2010, FDA published a proposal to amend the interim final rule (IFR) governing health claims concerning the risk of cardiovascular heart disease and consumption of phytosterols (see 21 C.F.R. § 101.83). FDA stated that, as of February 22, 2011, it intended to discontinue its policy of enforcement discretion that had been in effect since 2003 concerning certain health claims that go beyond the IFR. Based on comments and petitions by industry contending that more than 75 days were needed to relabel and reformulate products (see our prior post here), FDA decided to extend the 2003 enforcement discretion policy until February 21, 2012. FDAs decision does not constitute a response to the petitions it received in response to the proposed rule. ...

On March 29, 2018, FDA announced the Nutrition Innovation Strategy, which signaled their intention to take a fresh look at what can be done to reduce the burden of chronic disease through improved public nutrition. The agency wants to facilitate consumers making better food choices to improve their health. At the same time, FDA has acknowledged that in many cases, changes in food processing technology has rendered outdated certain provisions of the regulations once written to both inform and protect the public. Therefore, FDA has developed a plan to move ahead to update its policy toolkit.. This multi-pronged approach includes modernizing food labeling, including food standards, health claims policy, ingredient labeling requirements and continuing implementation of the updated nutrition facts label, menu labeling, and reducing sodium in processed food products.. In particular, in trying to gather information to help determine the best approach to revising food standards of identity, FDA held a ...

Thats from the New York Times. Anyone who believes that Congress will actually manage to ban junk food from schools-including junk food from vending machines-should save their optimism for Powerball or some other reasonable venture. Back in May of 2004, Sen. Tom Harkin (D-IA) introduced a measure that would merely develop nutritional guidelines for school vending machines. Guidelines. Thats all. But no. Four Democrats sided with eight Republicans to defeat the measure. Is the junk food lobby really that powerful? Consider the evidence: In June of 2005, Connecticut Governor Jodi Rell vetoed a bill that wouldve rid Connecticut schools of junk food, despite widespread parental approval. Guess who opposed the measure? Two months earlier, Kentucky had just barely managed to squeak out a bill that banned soda from elementary schools-anything more stringent would never have passed. Arizona had to make the same compromise in April. Members of Congress who oppose federal regulations on junk food ...

Health claims on food labels are claims by manufacturers of food products that their food will reduce the risk of developing a disease or condition. There are a variety of classifications for fiber, such as soluble and insoluble, viscous and nonviscous, and while all fiber seems to possess some cholesterol-lowering properties, certain types might be more effective than others. You can have oats in the form of instant oats, which cook faster. Oatmeal contains soluble fiber, which reduces your low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, the bad cholesterol. Thus, both grains donâ t cause a major spike in blood sugar after consumption.

Consumer research by the Foods Standards Agency (FSA) shows that we are eating too much saturated fat, putting ourselves at risk of heart disease, obesity, and strokes.
