ABOUT AOAC Working Group on Folic Acid:
From 2013 to 2018, AOAC INTERNATIONAL, in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health Office of Dietary Supplements, embarked on a large-scale stakeholder program to develop much needed consensus-driven performance standards and analytical methods for ingredients used in dietary supplements.
In the years since the program’s completion, product offerings, availability, and usage have expanded exponentially and brought greater attention to recognized analytical gaps needed to support dietary supplement quality and safety for producers and consumers.
AOAC INTERNATIONAL is re-invigorating its efforts to address these challenges in a collaborative program to establish new SMPRs and fit-for-purpose Official Methods of Analysis that meet stakeholder needs and provide greater confidence to consumers. As there is currently no standard or compendial method for folic acid, AOAC INTERNATIONAL proposes a project to address this analytical gap as a first step.
Goals of AOAC Working Group on Folic Acid
A funded integrated science project for folic acid to develop voluntary consensus standards that will support development, validation and implementation of methods for the determination of folic acid in chewable gels, soft gels and tablet dose forms.
