EU comments on safety of betaine as Novel Food
- Nov 28, 2018 -

Recently, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) assessment team commented on the safety of betaine as Novel Food. Betaine is obtained from the processing of beetroot (such as syrup, distillers grains, betaine glycerol). The European Commission has found that its composition, specifications, batch variability and stability have no safety risks. 

Betaine is found in natural foods such as beets, spinach and wheat flour. Betaine can be used in foods to meet specific health needs such as increased muscle strength (including carbohydrate-rich energy products, electrolyte-containing products, protein products, etc.). The recommended maximum daily dose is 2.5g. The target population is Sports people over 10 years old.
