Science Review of Isolated and Synthetic Non-Digestible Carbohydrates

Our review has relied on the draft guidance for industry “Scientific Evaluation of the Evidence on the Beneficial Physiological Effects of Isolated or Synthetic Non-digestible Carbohydrates Submitted as a Citizen Petition (21 CFR 10.30)” to identify those studies from which scientific conclusions could be drawn about a physiological effect that is beneficial to human health.
