GRAS, NDIs, and Other Important Decisions on Whether to Sell a Product as Food or a Supplement

Using attractive claims to promote food, beverage, and supplement products is a key to long-term success. However, companies have to not only stay within the parameters of permissible claims established by regulatory agencies enforcing laws and regulations, companies must also deal with state attorney generals and local district attorney offices, public action groups, and the continuous wave of class action plaintiff lawyers filling lawsuits for alleged false and misleading advertising.

Join this session, where expert speaker Justin Prochnow will address the claims receiving the most attention and scrutiny and will discuss the ways to best avoid unwanted attention and the courtroom. This session will discuss the following FDA guidance:

  • Draft guidance on new dietary ingredient notifications
  • Guidance on distinguishing liquid supplements from beverages
  • Review of FDA regulations governing food additives and generally recognized as safe (GRAS) ingredients
  • Review of regulations and FDA guidance on GRAS procedures
  • There will also be a detailed PowerPoint for attendees to view during the presentation and refer to afterwards as well.

Session Highlights:

  • Understanding how a product will be classified – as a food, beverage, or supplement
  • The similarities and differences between classifications of products and how each is regulated by the FDA
  • FDA’s guidance on distinguishing liquid supplements from beverages
  • Approval of all ingredients in conventional foods and beverages
  • The process for analyzing whether ingredients are approved food additives or GRAS
  • The process necessary for establishing ingredients as GRAS through the self-affirmed or self-concluded GRAS processes
  • How ingredients in dietary supplements must meet the definition of dietary ingredients and then, if they are new dietary ingredients (NDI), an NDI notification must be filed in most cases.
  • FDA’s current draft guidance on NDI notifications

  • C-suite level executives in food, beverage, supplement companies
  • Formulators of new products
