If you are a nutritionist, an alternative healer or even a food supplements manufacturer or seller we welcome you all to the world of Nutraceuticals in day-long deliberations on
Nutraceuticals is a word often misused and misunderstood. Is Nutraceutical a product, a drug or a supplement? Should these be treated under the ages of the norms of pharmaceutical industry or food processing industry or nutrition industry? These are the questions lesser understood and even much lesser debated.

In this little-understood space, there is a place for everything from medicines to foods and even food supplements. Thus there is a huge and immediate need to not only regulate this but set standard definitions and protocols. In an effort towards this goal, NuFFooDS Spectrum and Health Foods and Dietary Supplements Association (HADSA) is joining hands to offer a platform which brings together people who understand this space well.

The objective of this event is to initiate a debate on hitherto unexplored issues within Nutraceuticals regulation and product performance. There are 3 sessions which will have participants from industry, regulators, policy planners, academicians and manufacturers who would share their experiences and concerns.

Let?s get together for this movement to regulate the Nutraceuticals industry for a growth ride.

About Nutraceuticals

Nutraceuticals have become a buzzword in popular healthcare and wellness sector as a large number of people are realizing the importance of prevention of diseases and hence shifting from curative to preventive therapy. Nutraceuticals play a key role in this shift.

Nutraceuticals are the products isolated from foods that are generally sold in medicinal forms. They are defined as any food which provides health benefits in addition to the basic nutritional value found in foodstuff.

Basically, they are natural, bioactive chemical compounds that have health promoting, disease preventing or general medicine properties. They include vitamins, minerals, and herbal supplements. However, the term Nutraceuticals is little confusing as it is available in various dorms.
