The Food Standards Industry Series consists of in-depth workshops customised for food companies that are interested in implementing standards to build up their capabilities, adopt best practices, improve productivity, and facilitate market access to move up the value chain.

To counter increasing competition in the global food market, Singapore food companies need to invest in R&D for better quality and longer shelf-life food products. One strategy is to value-add their food products by incorporating functional food ingredients to create a competitive edge.


With the rise in the market demand for food product with nutrition and/health claims, AVA published a guideline for nutrition and health claims in 2009, covering over 40 food ingredients, based on input from the industry.


The primary objective of this standard is therefore to provide practical guidance for local food manufacturers to develop functional food with health claims, in the context of local regulatory and legal framework and in accordance with Codex Alimentarius. Food manufacturers with little knowledge or experience in nutrition and health claims can refer to this standard when developing functional food products.


This launch will give an overview of TR 58: 2017. Participants will learn the various clauses in this TR, such as product concept, product development, commercial production, and documentation.


This guideline is intended for use by food manufacturers developing food with functional ingredients.
