A novel food is defined in Regulation (EU) 2015/2283 as a food for which human consumption was negligible in the European Union before 15 May 1997, when the first novel food regulation came into force with Regulation (EC) 258/97.
Novel foods may not be placed on the market or used in food for human consumption until they are included in the European Union list.
FoodChain ID provides the services you need to evaluate the regulatory status of the native ingredient before processing.
We provide audits of the regulatory status of ingredients for use in foods and/or dietary supplements in the US, to determine whether the ingredient is an old dietary ingredient (ODI) or has to be notified to the Food and Drug Administration (NDI or GRAS notification depending on the case).
FoodChain ID helps you determine what needs to be done and provides professional support during every step of the FDA application process.
Product notification is mandatory in most EU countries before a product is placed on the market. A notification must be made for each product and each country it will be marketed in. Each country has its own regulations and procedures and its own deadlines for evaluation and validation.
Our specialists help you with the formula analysis, labelling compliance and the mandatory notification(s) for your product in the countries you want to market it in.
A health claim is any statement about a relationship between food and health.
We help you understand what you have the right to say about your product and the relationship between its ingredients and health benefits. We determine if you can use an already known and authorized claim, or if you need to do an health claim dossier; if it is the latter, we work with you to obtain a new one.
Food additives may also be added to dietary supplements for a variety of reasons ( coating agents for tablets, sweeteners for flavour, etc.). Food additives authorized for use in dietary supplements can be found in Regulation (EC) 1333/2008. We support businesses by evaluating the regulatory status of food additives within this regulation, conducting the scientific pre-diagnosis of the data in accordance with regulatory requirements of admissibility, and help to build application dossiers and communicate with the appropriate authority (EFSA, European Commission) if further follow-up is required.
Our Efficacy & Safety Literature Review Service supports businesses by researching, analysing and synthesizing all data related to the efficacy/physiological effect/safety of ingredients when taken orally, according to existing scientific literature published in peer reviewed journals and applicable regulatory requirements.
The quality of your products depends on the quality of the development and manufacturing processes in place. Our experts can help ensure the quality of your products and protect your brand by developing manufacturing subcontractor specifications (standards, rules, etc)); integrating European and other national quality standards (microbiological criteria, heavy metals, pesticides, solvent residues, GMOs, allergens and more) and evaluating procedures already in place (ingredient quality standards, controls, batch records, etc.)
Our team develops theoretical formulations, taking into account appropriate efficacy and safety dosages of selected ingredients, potential additional ingredients more likely to be identified and recognized by consumers, and other ingredients that may allow the use of Health claims.
Our experts are recognized as one of the leaders in designing EFSA-compliant clinical study protocols aiming to substantiate health claims or novel food authorizations. Following the evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the previously performed studies and EFSA opinions we will design the relevant protocol in line with EFSA-requested criteria for the evaluation of applications for authorization of health claims made on foods.
We provide training to help your team to understand the regulatory framework, regulatory status of ingredient, health claims, labeling and formulation, so they have the skillset to launch compliant products in the US, Europe, and Asia.
Manage risk by having our experts evaluate your product portfolio. We can review regulatory compliance (formulation, claims, etc), scientific support compliance (efficacy, interactions, safety), quality assurance (process, controls, analys), and export feasibility for new markets.
