EU Industry Guidance 1st of October 2018

This document is an industry Guidance prepared by interested European industry stake-holders convened under the auspices of the informal “Amino Acid Coalition”. The Guidance is intended to provide a voluntary and self-regulating basis for the safe nutritional use of amino acids, and their specific derivatives, in food supplements and other foods. It comprises a description of the current regulatory situation, a list of substances proposed, accompanied with relevant specifications and best practices.


On June 7, we held a brainstorming meeting with the members of the ICAAS Scientific Advisory Committee (ICAAS SAC).
