Food & Nutrition Research
Food & Nutrition Research is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published by Co-Action Publishing on behalf of the Swedish Nutrition Foundation.
As one of the first Open Access journals in its field, Food & Nutrition Research offers an important forum for researchers to exchange the latest results from research on human nutrition broadly and food-related nutrition in particular.
Nutrition and health claims
In Sweden the possibility to use health claims in the labelling and marketing of foods was introduced in 1990, when the Food Sector’s Code of Practice was established. Since 1 July 2007 a EU-Regulation (no 1924/2006) on nutrition and health claims applies in all EU member states. SNF and the principals of the former Swedish Code of Practice, the Swedish Food Federation and the Swedish Food Retailers Federation, maintained a “support programme” to help actors within the Swedish food sector to apply the Regulation in a practice. The support programme was terminated in December 2014, but SNF continues the work on nutrition and health claims, focusing on nutritional and scientific aspects. www.hälsopåståenden.se >>
