FSSAI: Under Nutra Rules No Curbs For Combining Ingredients

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has clarified that under Food Safety and Standards (Health Supplements, Nutraceuticals, Food for Special Dietary Use, Food for Special Medical Purpose, Functional Food and Novel Food) Regulations, 2016, there are no specific restrictions for combining ingredients.

FSSAI clarified that these products cannot be licensed under proprietary food as well, because Section 2.12 of FSS (Food Products Standards and Food Additives) Regulations, 2011, excludes Health Supplements, Nutraceuticals, Food for Special Dietary Use, Food for Special Medical Purpose, Functional Food and Novel Food.
 
FSSAI has added that it is the responsibility of FBOs to keep in mind the potential synergistic or antagonistic interactions amongst a combination of ingredients leading to impact on stability, bioavailability, safety, and efficacy of the product.
On licensing, the FSSAI has clarified that licence for products complying with these regulations shall be granted in accordance with the FSS (Licensing and Registration of Food Businesses) Regulations, 2011, except for novel foods which need prior approval as per NSF regulations.
