Novel food success for Nutraveris with Chia seeds protein and fibers extracts

From EFSA positive opinion to EU regulation approval

For the worldwilde leading dietary supplement company Amway (USA), Nutraveris, the leading European consultancy in nutrition and health, has obtain two new novel food approvals by EFSA.

These applications were related to two specific chia seeds extracts (Salvia hispanica L.), one for Chia seeds fibers and one for Chia seeds proteins preparations, for use in food supplements and in a range of foodstuffs.

After receiving a positive EFSA opinion in June 2019, EU commission authorised last April 6th 2020, the placing on the market of those two partially defatted chia seed (Salvia hispanica) powders as novel foods through regulation (EU) 2020/500.


I would highly recommend Nutraveris. They have delivered regulatory service beyond what was expected (and quoted!).  I trust the Nutraveris team to deliver the most up to date and relevant information. During a very challenging EU Novel Food application – the Nutraveris team, particularly my individual consultant, was able to navigate a strategy with positive results. In fact, our project was completed within budget and  ahead of schedule.  I would not hesitate to engage Nutraveris on any of our future EU projects.
