“Under Article 4 of the Claims regulation, the European Commission is under an obligation to establish nutrient profiles. These should have been established by 19 January 2009. They have not.
EHN recommends that:
– the European Commission proceeds immediately with establishing nutrient profiles in accordance with Article 4 in the Claims regulation
– the European Commission bases its nutrient profile model on work already done in Europe; the model should allow only the healthiest products to bear claims.”
