Parliamentary question - E-004201/2017(ASW)Parliamentary question

Answer given by Mr Andriukaitis on behalf of the Commission

In the 2007 Commission Guidance on the implementation of Regulation (EC) No 1924/2006 on nutrition and health claims made on foods[1], the term ‘probiotic’ is considered as implying a health benefit and should therefore be classified as a health claim and not as a nutrition claim. The Commission is not intending to change this classification.
