Abbott Nutrition is dedicated to the current, sound regulatory framework that promotes safety and health. Most of EAS sports nutrition foods are regulated as conventional foods.
- EAS sports nutrition foods such as EAS Myoplex shakes and bars are covered under the Nutrition Labeling and Education Act of 1990, which permits the use of nutrient contents and health claims on labels. This law requires all manufacturers to use only those nutrient content and health claims that have been approved by the FDA.
- EAS dietary supplements such as Muscle Armor are regulated under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) of 1994, which recognizes a role for dietary supplements and establishes a regulatory framework to ensure their safety.
- In 2007, the Federal Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) for dietary supplements were released. Abbott Nutrition follows these GMPs and ensures the quality and safety of all its EAS sports nutrition products through rigorous testing and manufacturing processes.
