The draft specifies the requirements on: (1) the use of amino acid as a nutritional fortification substance in foods for special dietary use; (2) the production raw materials and production processes of amino acid; (3) as well as the test methods for various physicochemical indicators of amino acid. Any feedback can be submitted before October 7, 2023.
The draft summarizes and improves the requirements on the use of 22 amino acids as nutritional fortification substances in GB standards related to foods for special dietary uses, such as GB 10765 Infant formula, GB 10766 Older Infant Formula, GB 25596 Infant Formula Foods for Special Medical Purposes, GB 29922 Foods for Special Medical Purposes and GB 24154 Sports Nutrition Food.
