PATHWAY-27 Scientific Guidelines

The Scientific Guidelines help to understand and apply the relevant steps of the health claim substantiation process. These steps include: 1) thoroughly reviewing the published evidence concerning any putative beneficial physiological effect(s) of the food or food constituent of interest (e.g. a bioactive compound); and 2) correctly designing,  conducting, interpreting, and reporting any necessary human dietary interventions. The guidance focuses on randomised controlled trials as they are the most rigorous type of interventions to investigate the claimed health effect of a specific food.
