Our facility is equipped to produce liquid dietary supplements or beverages.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) finalized “Distinguishing Liquid Dietary Supplements from Beverages,” a guidance aimed at helping manufacturers to determine whether a product in liquid form is a dietary supplement or a beverage.
The Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) defines beverages as conventional foods. Under the FD&C Act, dietary supplements cannot be represented for use as a conventional food (and therefore a beverage) or as a sole item of a meal or the diet. Representation of a product as a conventional food can be a result of its product or brand name, its packaging, the serving size or recommended daily intake, and even statements in its labeling or advertising.
Recommendations and Directions for Use: The FD&C Act defines dietary supplements as products that are intended to supplement the diet. Examples of intentions that could lead to a product being represented as a conventional food include: to quench thirst, to provide nutritional value, or to provide taste and aroma.
