Authorised EU health claims for water

J. Holdsworth,    European Hydration Institute, Spain

Abstract:

Water has been overlooked as a nutrient for many years. This chapter highlights the importance of water and maintaining adequate hydration for good health. It then provides an update of the European dietary reference values (DRVs) for water which clearly set out adequate levels of water consumption for different population groups, something which has been lacking in public health. Next, authorised health claims for water are presented, with a discussion of the scientific evidence behind these claims. Finally, there is a description of how water guidelines and health claims can be applied from consumer and industry perspectives.
