New Dietary Ingredient (NDI)

FD & C Act defines New Dietary Ingredients (NDIs) as ingredients that were not marketed in US in a dietary supplement before October 15, 1994. Any manufacturer or distributor tending to market dietary supplements with ‘New Dietary Ingredients’ (NDI) in US, must submit a notification about these ingredients to FDA.
NDI Requirements - A new dietary ingredient must adhere to two requirements:
  1. They must have been present in the food supply and should not be chemically altered.
  2. The source of evidence (history of use or safety evidence) includes published articles, scientific literature. Other forms of evidence may be accepted by the FDA.

New Dietary Ingredient Notification (NDIN) Submission

If you are planning to launch your product containing NDI for commercial circulation in US, you need to submit the premarket New Dietary Ingredient Notification (NDIN) application to FDA.

  • The application is submitted at least 75 days before the proposed date of the NDI introduction to the market.
  • Your NDIN application must contain the information that proves the safety of an NDI

Why the Need for An NDIN Consultant

The notification process is quite lengthy and the new revisions drafted in the 2016 guidance made the paperwork even more complex and confusing. Therefore, along with basic knowledge of NDIN, you must be aware of the view of FDA on NDIN over time, criteria to choose NDIN over GRAS and regulatory analysis of the Food Ingredients under the DSHEA 1994.

Changes in the NDIN Submission Process

Note that as of October 19, 2019, notifications are not being accepted via the FURLS portal. All notifications are not submitted in COSM. So, submitting notifications (timeframe, format, and method submission) is complex. The occurrence of misinterpreting the Regulatory requirements will result in a product recall.
