The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is adopting as a final rule, without change, the provisions of the interim final rule (IFR) that amended the regulation authorizing a health claim on soluble fiber from certain foods and risk of coronary heart disease (CHD), to add barley betafiber as an additional eligible source of beta-glucan soluble fiber. FDA is taking this action to complete the rulemaking initiated with the IFR.
