The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently brought the Office of Regulatory Affairs (ORA) into better alignment with current food safety regulations by restructuring the organization from a geographical arrangement to having whole reporting chains based on subject matter expertise.  Rather than having inspectors in specific geographic locations handle all the compliance issues in that area; now, inspection and compliance personnel within the ORA will be focused on one area of specialization, including biological products, bio research, human and animal food, medical device and radiological monitoring, pharmaceuticals, and tobacco. What this means to the dietary supplement industry is that…

Even in Sports Nutrition, consumers are becoming steadily more conscious of what they will and won’t eat and of ingredient and supplement panels.  Artificial flavors, colors, and sweeteners are taking a back seat to natural ingredients, as organic and non-GMO products continue to be more prominent and preferred.  A large reason for this is that sports nutrition drinks and supplements are more readily available in grocery and convenient stores, not just specialty stores and people of all ages are buying and consuming these products for reasons…

The nutritional supplement and food industries are continually evolving. In efforts to protect the consumer the nutritional supplement industry is highly regulated both internally by stakeholders and externally by the FDA.

Protein products are evolving to meet the changes in consumer demands. And consumers are wanting more and more from their protein products. First, they are becoming more conscious of labels, ingredients and certifications that verify the product they are buying is what businesses claim it is.
