Is This Stuff Legal? FDA Files on New Dietary Ingredients

Everybody is looking for a pill that makes them look and feel better, and the dietary supplement industry is happy to oblige. With new products hitting the market daily, this project aims to catalogue the new dietary ingredient notifications that manufacturers have sent to the FDA, which have been accepted, and which have been objected to.

There is a lot of misinformation online about dietary supplements, but especially on which contain legal, FDA compliant ingredients, versus ingredients that the FDA has objected to. Adding to the problem is that the FDA’s own website doesn’t contain a complete listing of new or unique ingredients they have (or have not) voiced concerns over (and what those concerns may or may not be). In fact, there is no complete online repository where consumers can view this information.

The ultimate goal of this project is to create such a repository.
