β-Carotene is added as a nutrient for health food filing. Its corresponding raw materials, reference standards and daily consumption, etc. are added. Except for claiming supplementing a certain kind of nutrient, health food filing products can also claim the functions of such nutrient according to Appendix D in GB 28050. For example, a calcium health food product can claim “Calcium helps strengthen bone and teeth.” etc. in addition to supplementing calcium.
