Considering the prevalence of constipation, and demographic trends which predict further increases in incidence, there are clear opportunities for food companies to develop product strategies to alleviate constipation symptoms. In Europe any food products claiming to have a beneficial health effect must be approved by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), which evaluates the scientific data presented and provides an opinion on whether there is sufficient scientific evidence to support the claim. Properly designed and conducted studies are crucial to winning EFSA approval success.
