This webinar is part of the WeightManagement2010 virtual conference and expo.

Meal replacements​ have received a positive opinion from EFSA​, showing that weight management​ can succeed in the stringent EU health claims arena​. Standards are different in the US. This session will look at how to build the science to substantiate a proposed claim, and what an agency like the US Federal Trade Commission looks for when it evaluates whether a claim is substantiated or not.
