China Clarifies the Use of NMN in Food is Illegal

NMN is prohibited from being produced or sold as food in China. CBEC is the sole option for the legal import of NMN products to China because it can be regarded as derivative of vitamin B, which is included in the CBEC positive list. Function claims are prohibited for CBEC imported NMN products.

On Jan. 13, SAMR published an official document asking local authorities to investigate on illegal selling and marketing of the so-called "anti-aging medicine", whose key component is nicotinamide mononucleotide (hereafter referred to as "NMN"). This document clarifies that NMN has not been approved as food additive, new food raw material or permitted to be used in drug or health food. That is, NMN is prohibited from being produced or sold as food in China.
