(Bethesda, MD) Joseph Betz, Ph.D., director of the Analytical Methods and Reference Materials Program in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS), presents information on the principles upon which food, drugs, and dietary supplements are regulated. Dr. Betz explains the differences in labeling requirements for foods and dietary supplements and provides examples of companies that inadvertently crossed the lines between conventional foods, dietary supplements, and drugs when they introduced new products to the market.
This presentation is part of the 2017 Mary Frances Picciano Dietary Supplement Research Practicum sponsored by the NIH Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS). This 2.5-day annual event for faculty, students, and health practitioners provides a thorough overview of issues, concepts, unknowns, and controversies about dietary supplements and supplement ingredients. It also emphasizes the importance of scientific investigations to evaluate the efficacy, safety, and value of these products for health promotion and disease prevention as well as how to carry out this type of research.
