BBC news this week wrote an article entitled 'EU health food claims law begins to bite', explaining the ongoing process with European regulations demanding that all health foods have a wealth of scientific evidence backing up any health claims. The article was fairly balanced, pointing out the fact that British health food products which endure and survive the whole process can be celebrated and well-trusted afterwards. However other views are also expressed, such as that of Jenny Baille from Power Health, who pointed out some of the disadvantages; "People will probably start buying in from unregulated countries especially via the internet and we could well end up with customers less protected than they were right at the start of this process."

So how will OptiBac Probiotics be affected by the changes? It is difficult to say as of yet, but read our statement on EFSA & Probiotic Health Claims.
