Barley Is Allowed Claim
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that whole grain barley and barley-containing products are allowed to claim that they reduce the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD).
Consumers can expect to see whole barley and dry milled barley products such as flakes, grits, flour, meal, and barley meal bearing the health claim. An example of the health claim that may be used is:
"Soluble fiber from foods such as [name of food], as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. A serving of [name of food] supplies [x] grams of the soluble fiber necessary per day to have this effect."
FDA is authorizing food manufacturers to immediately use the health claim for barley and the reduced risk of CHD. To qualify, barley foods must provide at least 0.75 grams of soluble fiber per serving.
