Yogurt Makers Group Sees Probiotics Rejections As Part Of A Learning Phase

October 7, 2009: 12:51 PM EST
A group representing the world’s biggest yogurt makers said the European Food Safety Authority’s recent rejection of health claims for probiotic ingredients represents only “technical obstacles” that can be overcome. The Authority completely rejected ten claims while ruling that another 170 simply could not be evaluated because of a lack of evidence. Noting that the rejections were part of a learning phase of a new evaluation system, the Yogurt and Live Fermented Milks Association said its members were working closely with the EFSA so that researchers could continue to assess the health benefits of probiotics yogurt.
