In keeping with the current consumer demand for foods that provide health benefits, Zespri International Limited has received a positive opinion for an EU health claim (under article 13.5) on green Kiwifruit and maintenance of normal defecation. In order to obtain the claimed effect, two large green kiwifruits (i.e. around 200 g of kiwi flesh) should be consumed.
