Summary

In the regulation claims are divided into two main categories: nutrition and health claims. In the future only claims that are positively pre-evaluated by EFSA are allowed to be used in commercial communication (all means).
Regulation will uniform the use of health claims also in berry production in EU and will hopefully increase the awareness on established health benefits of berries.
