Food labeling: health claims; soluble fiber from certain foods and risk of coronary heart disease. Final rule.

Abstract

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is amending its regulation authorizing a health claim on the relationship between soluble fiber from certain foods and risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). The amendment exempts certain foods from the nutrient content requirement of "low fat." The exemption will apply if the food exceeds the "low fat" requirement due to fat content derived from whole oat sources. The amendment expands the use of this health claim to some whole oat products that are currently ineligible for the health claim. FDA is taking this action in response to a petition submitted by the Quaker Oats Co.
