On Wednesday, August 21st, Pulse Canada hosted an expert panel workshop in Toronto on the potential for a health claim related to Lentils and Post-prandial Glycaemia in Toronto. Invited delegates to the workshop included over 30 representatives from the pulse industry, food industry, academia as well as and regulatory experts. The purpose of the workshop was to provide a forum in which to discuss a systematic literature review that was conducted in 2012 by Nutrasource Diagnostics Inc (NDI) with respect to achieving a health claim related to lentils and short term blood sugar control in Canada, the US or the EU.
Krista Coventry from NDI presented a background on the regulatory frameworks in Canada, the US, the EU and Australia/New Zealand.
