    Dear,

    Please advise whether “prebiotic” can be claimed in Indonesia.

    Besides, please advise whether calcium claim can be used for Synergy1.

    Thank you.

    According to Peraturan Pengawasan Klaim Dalam Label Dan Iklan Pangan Olahan (Nomor HK.03.1.23.11.11.09909 Tahun 2011), prebiotic claim is not allowed for inulin and calcium absorption claim is also not allowed for inulin-oligofructose mixture. Pre-approval of the claims from BPOM is needed.
