Documents about the glycomannan and weight reduction claim

We're waiting for Sam Grigg to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear European Food Safety Authority,

In 2010, the EFSA published the following document:

Scientific Opinion on the substantiation of health claims related to konjac mannan (glucomannan) and reduction of body weight (ID 854, 1556, 3725), reduction of post-prandial glycaemic responses (ID 1559), maintenance of normal blood glucose concentrations (ID 835, 3724), maintenance of normal (fasting) blood concentrations of triglycerides (ID 3217), maintenance of normal blood cholesterol concentrations (ID 3100, 3217), maintenance of normal bowel function (ID 834, 1557, 3901) and decreasing potentially pathogenic gastro-intestinal microorganisms (ID 1558) pursuant to Article 13(1) of Regulation (EC) No 1924/20061

This was produced by the EFSA Panel on Dietetic Products, Nutrition and Allergies.

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

1. Any documents, notes or minutes of meetings from this panel that are related to the development of the above document.
2. In particular, any documents, notes, or minutes of meetings from this panel that are related to the claim that glycomannan reduces body weight.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Kind regards,
Sam
