The medical foods category has an uncertain bill of health

July 28, 2016, Food Dive

Jessica O’Connell spoke at the IFT expo and is quoted in a Food Dive article regarding medical food products. O’Connell, commenting on how companies have tried to develop medical food, said the most common warning letters sent out by the FDA since 2006 use the words no “distinctive nutritional requirement” for the disease or condition. She added that since 2009, many warnings deal with the interpretation that an item is still not considered a medical food if there is no evidence that requirement cannot be met through dietary modification alone.
