Maximum Amounts of Vitamins and Minerals

Maximum amounts of vitamins and minerals in these types of products have not been set. However, safe levels of vitamins and minerals must be taken into account when formulating products.

See our report on The Safety of Vitamins and Minerals in Food Supplements for information on this. The FSAI has also developed guidance for food businesses on the safety of vitamins and minerals in food supplements

Minimum amounts are linked to the notion of a significant amount. A significant amount is defined in Annex XIII of Regulation (EU) 1169/2011 on the provision of food information to the consumer.
