Naturalpha’s goal is to provide professionals, interested by Nutrition and Health issues, with the right scientific and regulatory data.

The web portal consists of 4 main corners:

The “Science corner” is designed for monitoring and retrieving information regarding scientific and technological issues in Nutrition and Health. You will also find news about health ingredients effects, epidemiological studies, consumers’ behavior, clinical trials and innovative industrial processes.

The “Regulation corner” is aimed at improving the handling of regulatory data coming from EFSA and other agencies.

The “Health Claim Database” offers a complete access to the EFSA’s database on health claims (since June 2008). It makes it easier for R&D, Regulatory Affairs and Marketing departments to build successful health claims strategies.

With the Health Claim Database, perform an easy and quick search by claim type, health topic or products category to help you to:
• Identify and select the best wording for your claim
