NOTE: For AstaSana™, the term antioxidant refers to biological antioxidant activity and not antioxidant activity as defined by the FDA. FDA reserves use of the term “antioxidant activity” for nutrients with a chemical preservative activity which have antimicrobial effects for food preservation.  We suggest the use of similar qualifying language if considering the use as a front of pack claim.
