Notified food-health relationships to make a health claim

Standard 1.2.7 requires a person who is self-substantiating a food-health relationship in order to make a general level health claim to notify the Chief Executive Officer of FSANZ of the relationship before making a claim on food labels or in advertisements for food.

The person notifying must certify that the food-health relationship has been established by systematic review in accordance with Standard 1.2.7. Read more about notifications.

The list below is a record of food-health relationships that have been notified to FSANZ.

Disclaimer: FSANZ cannot guarantee and assumes no legal liability or responsibility for the accuracy, currency, completeness or interpretation of any information contained in the list of notified food-health relationships. FSANZ is not responsible for the enforcement of Standard 1.2.7 and does not assess compliance of the notified food-health relationships. Our role is only to administer the notification process. Publication by FSANZ does not indicate acceptance, approval or validation of the notified food-health relationship. Any concerns about the content of this list should be directed to an enforcement agency. Read the list of agencies and departments responsible for enforcement
