The final publication of the EC Concerted Action Process for the Assessment of Scientific Support for Claims on Foods (PASSCLAIM) has now been published.
The document presents a consensus view of criteria which, if met, provide a reasonable assurance that scientific data underpinning health claims made for foods are adequate for the purpose, and that the claims can be considered valid. It also discusses the relative strengths and limitations of types of scientific approaches and data, and summarises markers of outcomes, selected as examples by the expert groups, that are relevant to different health and disease states. The discussion provides guidance on the interpretation of the criteria.
