Health is the ability to adapt

How to substantiate health claims for gut health and immunity?
Health and functional claims made on foods, frequently focus on the digestive tract and
already, there is a large market for gut-functional food products worldwide.

Safety Authority (EFSA). These guidelines make the substantiation of a health claim in the
area of gut health and immunity quite a challenge.
In this white paper we will discuss the definition of a health claim, the most important
EFSA guidelines and our solution to substantiating health claims: challenge studies.
