Previously jubilant Industry not so jubilant as NHF’s predictions come true By Scott C. Tips, National health Federation President and General Counsel specializing in food and drug law 16 August 2016 I truly wish that I had been wrong. Four years ago I predicted in writing that the whole-food industry’s jubilance over the decision of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to revise the FDA’s Draft Guidance for Industry: Dietary Supplements: New Dietary Ingredient Notifications and Related Issues would be short-lived and lead to nothing more than crumbs for the industry and consumers alike.
