Walnuts get the backing of the FDA

April 5, 2004, just-food.com, by Philip Fine: The Food and Drug Administration will recognize the health benefits of walnuts with a label that will read "Supportive but not conclusive research shows that eating 1.5 oz of walnuts per day, as part of a low saturated fat and low cholesterol diet, and not resulting in increased caloric intake may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. See nutrition information for fat [and calorie] content."

Walnut producers applaud what amounts to a ‘qualified health claim’ from the FDA despite the rather cautious nature of the claim.

The FDA is trying to use current science-based nutritional information to help Americans make choices to improve their dietary health.
