We are pleased to announce that on March 19th, 2014 the European Commission approved the use of Quatrefolic® in the European Union as a Novel Food Ingredient to be used in food supplements. This opens the way for the commercialization of Quatrefolic in the 28 EU-member state market to Quatrefolic®.
The decision follows EFSA positive scientific opinion delivered in October 2013, which concluded that Quatrefolic is a safe and effective source of folate (www.efsa.europa.eu/it/efsajournal/pub/3358.htm).
This key milestone is part of the global strategic plan that started in 2010 with the approval of Quatrefolic® as New Dietary Ingredient (NDI) by FDA. In the USA Quatrefolic® has become a benchmark for innovation, safety and quality in the folate supplementation.
