The Food Journal Examines Dietary Supplements
Date:4/2/2013

SANTA MONICA, Calif., April 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Federal Drug Administration (FDA) has established prevention-oriented standards and rules for food, but does not approve dietary supplements.  To better understand the nutritional supplement landscape, the April 2nd edition of The Food Journal will provide an analysis on how the FDA provides oversight on claims and nutrients for supplements and review the entire supply chain to better understand how supplements make it from the manufacturer to the consumer.   

"Supplements have experienced a steady growth over the last ten years and it is anticipated that this growth will continue," says Phil Lempert , editor of The Food Journal.  "The population is living longer, and some credit this to supplements and healthier living, but it is imperative that manufacturers, retailers and consumers better understand its best practices, claims and safety."

In this issue, editors will interview experts and cover supplement topics that include: health and nutrient content claims, structure-function claims, FDA grades for supplements, the Food Safety Modernization Act, The Recommended Daily Allowances (RDA) for food and supplements, the Government Process of Supplement Regulation and the role of the FTC, what it takes to get a product removed, supplements for children, and the position of the grocer.

The Food Journal is a unique and in-depth e-newsletter providing bi-monthly unbiased analysis and commentary. Each issue examines one timely topic as it relates to the food chain from soil to shelves. In addition, each issue contains dozens of links within the body of its copy to provide comprehensive information about the particular subject. As a result, The Food Journal also functions as an annotated bibliography on a specific topic.
