Part three sets out ingredients with permitted ‘general function’ claims, including choline, creatine, sweeteners, dietary lactase supplements and polyphenols in olive oil. Part four outlines foods and nutrients with permitted health claims, with chapters on vitamins and minerals, proteins, meat, fish, water and the replacement of saturated fats.
