Six probiotics ingredients, NHP registered by the Ministry of Health of Canada
Ildong Bioscience, an affiliate of Ildong Pharmaceutical Group's health functional food business, announced on the 23rd that six kinds of ingredients for probiotics have been registered in the Natural Health Products (NHP) of the Ministry of Health of Canada.
The Health Canada NHP registration is a system that manages and supervises according to related regulations so that consumers can safely consume and use health products such as vitamins, minerals, and probiotics. Registration is determined through data verification and expert evaluation on the safety and quality of raw materials and products, and the evaluation reflects whether the entire process from manufacturing to distribution and sales meets related standards.
In Canada, in order to distribute and sell health functional food items locally, it is necessary to obtain a related license by obtaining an item number (NPN) through natural health product (NHP) registration in advance.
The strains registered this time are six strains, including Lactobacillus rhamnosus IDCC 3201. These strains are raw materials for probiotics developed and produced by Ildong Bioscience, and are used as raw materials and materials for various products such as health functional foods and cosmetics.
An official from Ildong Bioscience said, "We have been recognized for the quality and safety of our probiotic raw materials through the registration of health Canadian natural health products," and stressed, "In addition to the US GRAS certification obtained earlier, we have secured favorable requirements for entering the US market."
In addition to the six types of probiotics that have been registered, we plan to promote additional registration of various raw materials, while introducing strains with high utility value through continuous research and development, he said.
