EFSA Issues Positive Safety Statement for the Use of Chromium Picolinate in EU Food Supplements
Date:6/30/2009

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) concludes no safety concerns for the use of chromium picolinate in food supplements, in response to Nutrition 21's Application to market Chromax(R) chromium picolinate in Europe.

PURCHASE, N.Y., June 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Nutrition 21, Inc. (Nasdaq: NXXI), the developer and marketer of nutritional supplements under the Iceland Health(R) and Diabetes Essentials brands, announced today that the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) released its safety assessment supporting the use of chromium picolinate in food supplements in the European Union (EU). In its safety assessment, the EFSA concluded that chromium picolinate does not present a safety concern when used as a source of chromium in food supplements. This assessment is an initial step in the procedure for the formal EU approval of chromium picolinate as an acceptable form of supplemental chromium.

To assist Nutrition 21 in the submission of data for the EFSA to conduct its safety assessment the Company retained Cantox Health Sciences International, a leading international scientific and regulatory consulting firm. Nigel Baldwin, Ingredient Safety Expert from Cantox Health Sciences International, stated, "The EFSA's review and published opinion show the level of detail that we and Nutrition 21 went through to clearly demonstrate chromium picolinate as the form of chromium with the most safety data behind it. We are pleased with the EFSA's safety assessment of chromium picolinate. The standards set by the EFSA are the gold standards for the rest of the world and we believe this bodes well for Nutrition 21."

Chromax chromium picolinate is Nutrition 21's top selling nutritional supplement ingredient in the U.S. Approval of this ingredient in the EU would allow Nutrition 21 to enter into these new markets.
