I'm looking into the requirements for food supplement in the US.
As part of my research I'm trying to understand what ingredients are permitted for use, but I'm having trouble understanding the New dietary ingredients regulation and it's application in real life:
I'll use Moringa leaf as an example:
As far as I can tell it is a new dietary ingredient ( not sold before 1994 etc.) and I found two NDIN's that where submitted and rejected for technical reasons and for lack of sufficient information, so I would assume the ingredient is not approved / shouldn't be sold.
But - I can see many Moringa supplements sold in the US (Amazon and other outlets) which may suggest that it is approved.
Am I missing something? or is it simply a case of lack of enforcement?
Thanks in advance,
