Attention deficit dis-awarded: EFSA rejects German caffeine juice claims
The rejection came despite the European Food Safety Authority’s Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies (NDA) previously approving article 13, general function, caffeine-attention claims although they are not law yet as EU member states debate the merits and usability of caffeine-based claims.
But those NDA positive opinions related to caffeine at levels of 75 mg or more per serving. Here, and as for a recently rejected caffeine-based claim submitted by SmithKline Beecham Limited in the UK (40 mg), the level was much lower (100 mg per litre).
More broadly, the NDA said 30 of the studies were not conclusive because they were not based on German mineral water firm, Hassia Mineralquellen’s ‘Rosbacher drive’ juicy mineral water.
The other unpublished study from 2007 presented in the article 13.5 dossier under the European Union nutrition and health claims regulation (NHCR) failed because it was an, “open-label, non-randomised sequential study which did not report on any outcomes of attention.”
In Kentucky Senate race, Bill Clinton plays a starring role
As Grimes weighed whether to run for the Senate, Clinton took nearly an hour out of a visit last year to Owensboro, Ky., to huddle privately with her. Hillary Rodham Clinton provided her counsel as well. They both offered their unconditional support and talked about how much fight it will take for a Democrat to unseat Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, a wily campaigner known for vilifying his opponents.
“I think what the Clinton family, from President Clinton to Secretary Clinton, and I have in common is that we don’t scare easy — no matter the bully,” Grimes said in an interview. She added that Clinton’s presidency left an indelible impression on her and that she is now “a strong Kentucky woman” hoping to follow his lead.
Celebrated as a star recruit in an otherwise troublesome midterm election year for her party, Grimes is living proof that the Clintons, both now out of office, remain the first family in Democratic politics. At 35, Grimes is just 15 months older than their daughter, Chelsea Clinton, and is practically the Clintons’ political offspring. A win in November would demonstrate the appeal of Clintonian centrism in Republican territory.
