China Issues Health Food Regulation on Supplements and Claims

On December 1, China’s State Administration for Marketing Regulation published “Health Food Ingredients Catalogue Nutrient Supplements” and a directory of health food functions allowed for nutrient supplement claims.  The functions broadly include supplement of insufficient dietary intake and reduction of disease risk.  Vitamins and minerals are specifically listed along with their functional roles. Beta carotene has been added as a nutrient for health food filing. There is a provision of the Catalogue that allows health foods to claim nutrient supplements as well.  The regulation took effect on December 1, 2020. Ask us questions here.
