CHILE: TOWARD A STRICTER REGULATION ON ADVERTISING ON FUNCTIONAL FOODS
Chilean Government announced a move to introduce into the national food regulation the concept of "functional properties" as a synonym of "healthy properties".
The change is expected to reduce the legal incertainty on the use of the terms and the poteNtional misleading impact on the consumer.
In the same sense, it is proposed to incorporate the definition of foods with functional properties strictly associated with the possibility of using some of the frames of healthy messages approved by the Ministry of Health, with the main objective of avoiding misleading advertising and compliance with the provisions of articles 110 and 114 of this regulation, relating to the advertising conditions of food.
