Food supplements also referred to as health supplements, dietary supplements, or nutraceuticals, are regulated in the EU by Directive 2002/46/EC, which describes food supplements as “foodstuffs the purpose of which is to supplement the normal diet and which are concentrated sources of nutrients or other substances with a nutritional or physiological effect”.
