False health claims on food products

by archyw

Food products which promise you “a source of vitamins”, a “detox” cure, or which fight “against cholesterol”, are they reliable? Far from it, warns an investigation by the Directorate General for Competition, Consumption and Fraud Control (DGCCRF), published on June 21 and which warns consumers against these health claims.

Many food products: cereals, honey, chocolates, teas, herbal teas… display misleading therapeutic claims which can mislead “the consumer in error, or even present a risk to his health”, explains the DGCCRF, in a recent report. It notes that the regulations concerning communication on the health impact of certain foodstuffs are not always respected.
