Resource database to support food health claims
Nutrigenomics New Zealand has commenced the development of an on-line searchable database for industry to access relevant and known information that would inform the development of self-substantiated claims. An advisory group of industry representatives will ensure that this project meets the commercial needs and interests of the sector. It will include reference to biomarkers, published clinical trials, disease or health outcomes and relevant genetic and metabolic pathways. It will be comprehensive in scope and professionally designed, and should be available by mid 2014.
