Les phytomicronutriments :tour d’horizon et difficultés rencontrées pour établir des ANC. Liens avec la réglementation des allégations santé

Abstract : Epidemiological data, experimental animal studies and clinical trials suggested that a greater consumption of plant-derived products is associated with a reduced risk of several diseases (diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, some cancers). Fibers, vitamins, minerals are part of the components having a role in the prevention. But plants also contain a variety of compounds from their secondary metabolism that may have also a preventive health effect. These compounds belong to different families: polyphenols, carotenoids (non provitaminic A) as lycopene or lutein, sulfur compounds (glucosinolates and allyl sulfides). Because of their possible role on human health and their occurrence in the diet, it is assumed by the scientific community to name them phytomicronutrients, although it has not yet demonstrated their essentiality. Indeed, no recommended dietary allowance (RDA) has been established. However, some phytomicronutrients have been already integrated in health claims (EFSA, 2012). Furthermore, new biological functions of these substances are currently explored, such as their effect on gut microflora, with a promising future in human health.
