Norms related to nutraceuticals and special dietary food


Jul 19, 2022

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has issued a draft of the norms related to Food Safety and Standards (Health Supplements, Nutraceuticals, Food for Special Dietary Use, Food for Special Medical Purpose, and Prebiotic and Probiotic Food) Regulations, 2022.
This regulation would replace the previous regulations of 2016 for these products.
According to the FSSAI, it was done to overhaul the entire segment and make it more ‘stakeholder’ friendly and as articles of food falling under these regulations are specially processed or formulated for specific nutritional or dietary purpose and  should be clearly distinguishable from foods intended for normal consumption, these regulations will benefit the nutraceuticals sector to have clear guidelines and will also enable field functionaries to ensure better compliance at the ground level.
