Description
Proposed revoking an authorized health claim that links soy protein consumption to reduced risk of heart disease, citing inconsistent research results.
Notes
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration proposed to revoke an authorized health claim that links soy protein consumption to reduced risk of heart disease, citing inconsistent results from research conducted since the claim was authorized in 1999. Companies currently using the health claim on food product labels may continue to do so until the agency takes a final decision.
