EHPM published its proposal for maximum and minimum levels for vitamins and minerals in food supplements which has been shared with the EU Authorities.

The “EHPM proposal for maximum and minimum levels for vitamins and minerals: food supplements for adults and children sold in Europe” was published on the 1st of December. The EHPM Secretariat and experts will present its proposal to the European Commission in mid-December 2021.

The aim of the EHPM report is to propose a model for setting maximum levels for food supplements for adults and children that are safe for consumers, based on a robust scientific approach. The model allows for maximum consumer choice and continued benefits for consumers once harmonised maximum levels are set. The EHPM model also includes minimum levels for vitamins and minerals.

This proposal has been developed by EHPM’s technical experts, starting from the previous EHPM model, in the framework of the EHPM Regulatory and Quality Working Group chaired by Martin Last, EHPM’s Vice-President, in cooperation with Dr. Michele Sadler, an independent Scientific and Regulatory Adviser specialised in Nutrition and Biochemistry.
