The great supplement health claim lottery, says Which?

Article Type: Food facts From: Nutrition & Food Science, Volume 41, Issue 4

We’re concerned that people are being taken for a ride, needlessly paying a premium for many products on the basis of health claims that haven’t been backed up by scientific evidence. We want to see the European Commission release a list of accepted and rejected claims as soon as possible, so that consumers will not continue to be bamboozled by health claims they cannot trust.
