Understanding the impact of legislation on "reduction of disease risk" claims on food and drinks

The FP7 EU funded rediclaim project seeks to understand the way in which the European Regulation (EC) No. 1924/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 December 2006 on nutrition and health claims made on foods and associated legislation, has had and continues to have an impact on the substantiation and use of "reduction of disease risk" claims on food and drinks.

The overall aims of rediclaim are to achieve effective compliance with better regulation and to contribute to the enhancement of innovative and competitive products.

The rediclaim consortium is uniquely qualified to achieve the project's objectives. The research teams across the consortium differ with regard to their core disciplines and commonly used research methods, combining expertise in law, economics, food science, business, marketing, nutrition and public health. The rediclaim consortium members are also members of the complementary CLYMBOL consortium (KBBE.2012.2.1-01: Role of health-related symbols and claims in consumer behaviour).
