 Q:  What information must the manufacturer disclose on the label of a dietary supplement?


 A:

FDA regulations require that certain information appear on dietary supplement labels. Information that must be on a dietary supplement label includes: a descriptive name of the product stating that it is a "supplement;" the name and place of business of the manufacturer, packer, or distributor; a complete list of ingredients; and the net contents of the product.

In addition, each dietary supplement (except for some small volume products or those produced by eligible small businesses) must have nutrition labeling in the form of a

"Supplement Facts" panel. This label must identify each dietary ingredient contained in the product.
