This article needs clarification.
In what respect there is a change to the previous rulings of the FDA dating to 2004 and 2007, as shown below? "Effective November, 2004, the US FDA allowed OLIVE oil products to carry the following claim:
Limited and not conclusive scientific evidence suggests that eating about 2 tablespoons (23 grams) of olive
oil daily may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease due to the monounsaturated fat in olive oil. To
achieve this possible benefit, olive oil is to replace a similar amount of saturated fat and not increase the
total number of calories you eat in a day. One serving of this product contains [x] grams of olive oil.
Effective in 2007, the US FDA allowed CANOLA oil products to carry the following claim:
Limited and not conclusive scientific evidence suggests that eating about 1 1/2 tablespoons (19 grams) of
canola oil daily may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease due to the unsaturated fat content in canola
oil. To achieve this possible benefit, canola oil is to replace a similar amount of saturated fat and not
increase the total number of calories you eat in a day. One serving of this product contains [x] grams of
canola oil.
Effective in 2007, the US FDA allowed CORN oil products to carry the following claim:
Very limited and preliminary scientific evidence suggests that eating about 1 tablespoon (16 grams) of corn
oil daily may reduce the risk of heart disease due to the unsaturated fat content in corn oil. FDA concludes
that there is little scientific evidence supporting this claim. To achieve this possible benefit, corn oil is to
replace a similar amount of saturated fat and not increase the total number of calories you eat in a day. "
