Barry Callebaut’s flavanol health claim approved by EU Commission

      Comments Off on Barry Callebaut’s flavanol health claim approved by EU Commission

The company has received the right to use the health claim: “cocoa flavanols help maintain the elasticity of blood vessels, which contributes to normal blood flow” — the first to do so in the cocoa and chocolate industry.

Barry Callebaut was able to provide evidence that the daily intake of 200 mg. of cocoa flavanols (provided by 2.5 g. ACTICOA cocoa powder or 10 g. ACTICOA dark chocolate) supports a healthy blood circulation by helping to maintain the elasticity of the blood vessels.
