25 years of DSHEA: An ingredient supplier’s perspective – podcast

Rodney Benjamin, director of research and development and technical support, Bergstrom Nutrition, discusses the impact of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA) from an ingredient supplier’s perspective.

The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA) put into place the regulations that govern dietary supplements, including good manufacturing practices (GMPs) and requirements around structure/function claims. The onus to ensure products meet regulatory requirements often falls on brand owners, but that doesn’t mean DHSEA doesn’t impact other parts of the supply chain. In this podcast, Rodney Benjamin, director of research and development and technical support, Bergstrom Nutrition, discusses the impact of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA) from an ingredient supplier’s perspective. Key points of the discussion include:

  • Relevancy of GMPs for ingredient suppliers;
  • The role of DSHEA in development of a branded ingredient; and
  • Need for greater regulatory oversight to ensure current regulations are enforced.
