Executive Summary

Movement among member countries toward the U.S. proposal that upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals be based on scientific risk assessment rather than a multiple of an RDI is supported by CRN and NNFA following the 22nd Session of the Codex Committee on Nutrition & Foods for Special Dietary Uses in June. Although the Proposed Draft Guidelines for Vitamin and Mineral Supplements remains at the third stage of the eight-step process, several key issues, such as upper limits, have shifted in favor of the trade groups' positions. However, the committee remains in favor of creating a positive list of allowable nutrient ingredients, which the trade groups and the U.S. have opposed. CFSAN Lead Nutritional Scientist Elizabeth Yetley, PhD, chaired the U.S. delegation
