EFSA Panel Issues Positive Opinion On Health Claim For Thiamine For Babies

July 22, 2010: 10:23 AM EST
The nutrition advisory panel of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has issued a “scientific opinion” stating that a health claim regarding dietary intake of vitamin B1 (thiamine) and carbohydrate metabolism in children from birth to three years old is valid. The panel acknowledged that thiamine is a well-recognized nutrient that is easily measurable in foods. The applicant for the health claim was IDACE, a European association representing the EU dietetic food industry. It supported its application with various scientific studies. The panel approved the claim that “vitamin B1 plays an important role in the carbohydrate and energy metabolism of food.”
