Number of Investigational Food Additive (IFA) Protocols received

Dictionary: Any substance that is intentionally added to food is a food additive and is subject to premarket review and approval by FDA, unless the substance is generally recognized, among qualified experts, as having been adequately shown to be safe under the conditions of its intended use, or unless the use of the substance is otherwise excluded from the definition of a food additive. A safe animal food supply helps ensure healthy animals and people. CVM works with sponsors investigating the safety and utility of animal food substances by reviewing and commenting on research protocols prior to these experiments being conducted.
