Delegate and NHF President Scott Tips is in attendance at the 33rd Session of the Codex Committee on Nutrition and Foods for Special Dietary Uses (CCNFSDU) in Bad Soden am Taunus, Germany, from November 14-18th, 2011.
The CCNFSDU agenda will include the “Revised Nutrient Reference Values for Labeling Purposes in the Codex Guidelines on Nutrition Labeling (at Step 4),” which seeks to lower certain key nutrient levels below even sub-optimal levels and which NHF has successfully fought off for the last 2-1/2 years.
Watch for a full report from the meeting itself.
Codex fact: Germany was the first country to ban the sale of dietary supplements except by pharmaceutical drug companies.
