The French National Academies of Medicine (ANM) and Pharmacy (ANP) have recently made known their positions regarding nutrition and health claims. Among others, ANM and ANP recommend to give up the concept of nutrient profile, to limit the number of foods eligible for a claim, and to specify advantages and disadvantages of products with claims on the labeling. In addition, the National Academies recommend to take into account the relevance, in terms of public health, of the marketing of food products with claims, and also to conduct a thorough risk-benefit analysis.
