The NHF will have Delegate and NHF President Scott Tips in attendance at the upcoming 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.
The NHF requests that anyone with arguments against the “lowered” NRVs (Nutrient Risk Values), please submit those arguments and scientific citations to the NHF (email@example.com) so that they may be included with the formal comments of the NHF.
