Comment deadline on vitamins & minerals at hand

NOP is requesting comments on an interim rule addressing the use of vitamins and minerals in organic products. The interim action allows vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A and D, folic acid, or calcium, to be added to organic foods after their Sunset date of Oct. 21, 2012, while USDA completes the process of clarifying which additional nutrients may be added to organic products. Public comments on this interim rule will be accepted until Dec. 26. Contact Gwendolyn Wyard, OTA’s Regulatory Director for Organic Standards and Food Safety, for more details.
