Description Functional foods are closely associated with claims on foods. There are two categories of claims on foods: nutrition claims and health claims. Health claims on (functional) foods must be scientifically substantiated. In December 2006, the European Union published its Regulation 1924/2006 on nutrition and health claims made on foods. As concerns scientific evaluation, the EU-project PASSCLAIM resulted in a set of criteria for the scientific substantiation of health claims on foods. The European Food Safety Authority provides the scientific advise to the European Commission for health claims submitted under Regulation 1924/2006 and has hitherto published several hundreds of opinions on health claims, part of which are positive, part which are negative and a few with insufficient evidence. Antioxidant claims have been approved for the general function of vitamins but not for direct health effects in humans. Another issue with claims is consumer understanding. Consumers can hardly distinguish between graded levels of evidence, and they do make only little or no distinction between nutrition and health claims. Consumers understand nutrition and health claims different from scientists and regulators. Therefore, innovation in industry can readily proceed via approved nutrition claims and approved health claims. The market and the shelves in the stores will not be empty; rather they will look different in the years to come.

I'm following a course in three.js and want to make a new three.js page soon which will replace this page completely

for the moment I can only just show you this little fun exercise that I learned from the course of Bruno Simon Portfolio

A little game

Play a little game

game in html5

This game is a variant of a game made by Karsten Øster Lundqvist in the class from Futurelearn.
I adapted the android app game code (with some variation on the original game)using the techniques from the Edx class about html5 from Michel Buffa so it can be played inside a webpage.


Play a little game Unity3d rollerball game

Most of the games I made in the course "Introduction to Game Development" from Coursera about unity3d don't work anymore in current browsers so I removed the links.
