Nutraceuticals are products derived from foods, which are sold in a medical form and which have substantial physiological benefits on the human body. In the EU, as nutraceuticals do not satisfy the definition of either a food or a medicine, they are currently unregulated.
McIntosh Scientific has a strong interest in the science of foods as medicine and welcomes enquiries from companies interested in the development and marketing of nutraceutical products. We are happy to provide scientific and regulatory support in a variety of capacities:
- Risk analyses relating to ingredient sourcing and manufacture
- Literature searches and outsourced research to elucidate molecular mechanisms of action
- Preparation of a range of supporting scientific documents
