Food supplements are considered foodstuffs, although they have some specificities, such as the fact that they are presented in dosed forms. They are concentrated sources of nutrients or other substances with a nutritional or physiological effect, alone or in combination. They are intended to complement and/or supplement the normal diet and should not be used as a substitute for a varied diet.
Food supplements must have a beneficial effect but they are not medicines. As such, they cannot mention the prophylactic, treatment or cure properties of diseases or their symptoms. Labelling, presentation and advertising cannot refer to these properties either. To be marketed, they must comply with Decree-Law No. 136/2003 in its current wording, which transposes Directive 2002/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 10 June 2002.
In the European Union, it is the competence and responsibility of the Member States to decide, in accordance with the respective legislation in force, whether a product is classified as a food supplement or as a medicine, which may vary from country to country.
The categories used in food supplements are not always clear, as there may be some overlap. Three major groups can be considered: vitamins and minerals, plants and botanical extracts, and other substances (see table on next page). According to a Portuguese study,1
plants/extracts (56%) and vitamins/minerals (23%) are the most prevalent ingredients on national food supplement labels.
It is also considered a category of frontier products – compounds that can be simultaneously defined as medicines and food supplements. Food law does not prohibit substances with pharmacological activity from being included in food supplements. This means that the same substance can be marketed according to different requirements (food law or drug law). Some examples of substances present in borderline products are: glucosamine/chondroitin, melatonin, valerian, Ginkgo biloba, Serenoa repens.
Food supplements may only be made available to the final consumer in the form of a pre-packaged product. They are sold in dosed form (capsules, tablets, pills, pills and other similar forms, powder sachets, liquid ampoules, dropper bottles and other similar forms of liquids or powders), which are intended to be administered in units reduced quantity measures.
Unlike most foods, their placing on the market must be preceded by a notification to the Competent Authority, the DGAV (General Directorate of Food and Veterinary Medicine), and does not involve the submission of safety tests. Their safety must be ensured by the economic operators who place them on the market, through compliance with the Community Food Safety rules in force throughout the European Union.
As a result of the applicable legislation, there are mandatory references in medicines and advertising mentions in food supplements, as illustrated in the Figure below:
Knowing that food is an open system, subject to the most diverse interferences and interactions, adverse reactions sometimes occur that may be related to the consumption of food supplements. The collection and systematization of this information is of utmost importance in terms of food safety and, consequently, in the defense of public health. The DGAV, as the Regulatory Authority, ensures the registration and analysis of adverse reactions, providing on its portal a form for notification of adverse reactions that should be completed and sent preferably to the email address of DGAV's Nutrition and Food Services Department : firstname.lastname@example.org Cristina Mousinho, Fátima Hergy Reference: 1 https://www.repository.utl.pt/bitstream/10400.5/8229/1/Carateriza%C3%A7%C3%A3o%20do%20mercado%20portugu% C3%AAs%20de%20supplements%20food%20in%202014%20final.pdf (accessed 03/31/2017)
