Health Claim from FDA Promotes Dairy Products to Fight Osteoporosis Risk

A health claim, written in simple language will inform consumers, about the benefits of a including plenty of dairy products in their diet, to help avert osteoporosis//. This has been proposed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The scientific evidence, upon which this claim is based, is supported firmly by The National Dairy Council (NDC). The FDA intends to educate the public at large through this health claim, that a well balanced diet comprising of sufficient calcium and vitamin D, coupled with a healthy life style, and regular physical exercise, helps to bring down the risk of osteoporosis.

Ann Marie Krautheim, a registered dietitian and senior vice president of nutrition and health promotion at the National Dairy Council says, "The proposed claim provides a clearer way to communicate the benefits of calcium and vitamin D in bone health,". "We hope the simplified language will help consumers better understand the importance of three daily servings of dairy to obtain these nutrients and reduce the risk of osteoporosis."

Together, milk, cheese and yogurt provide excellent sources of calcium and vitamin D. In addition to calcium and vitamin D, the U.S. Surgeon General's Report on Bone Health and Osteoporosis recognizes the role of many other nutrients in dairy foods, including magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and protein, that work together to help protect bones. The report also recognizes the importance of regular physical activity in contributing to bone health. Health professionals across the country continue to recognize the importance of dairy foods and osteoporosis. "A proposed new health claim demonstrating the connection between calcium and vitamin D and the role it plays in reducing the risk of osteoporosis will draw attention to milk as one of the richest dietary sources of calcium and vitamin D, critical for building strong bones in kids and teens, and providing the best defense against developing osteoporosis later in life ," says Frank Greer, MD, FAAP (Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics), chairman of the AAP Committee on Nutrition. "While calcium supplements and non-dairy foods such as calcium-fortified beverages are an alternative, these products do not offer milk's unique nutrient package."

The National Dairy Council and leading health professional organizations – as part of the 3-A-Day of Dairy program – work to educate families on how to maintain good bone health throughout life and reduce the risk of osteoporosis later in life, by eating a healthy diet that includes the recommended three daily servings of nutrient-rich low-fat or fat-free milk, cheese or yogurt recommended in the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
