Back From The UK!
Good day to all of you!
I just returned from a long trip to the UK this week. While there I was assessing the restrictions that have been placed on Stevia but, more importantly all supplements, herbs and vitamins. We ship quite a bit of stevia to the UK and so far we have only lost on shipment.
Recent UK proposals could ban around 200 supplements from sale and under the EU Food Supplements Directive, due to come into effect in December, supplements will only be able to include vitamins and minerals taken from an approved list. The ban had been challenged by the ANH, the Health Food Manufacturers' Association (HFMA) and the National Association of Health Stores (NAHS). They argued the legislation would be too restrictive, and would threaten thousands of perfectly safe products.
The directive was first approved by EU governments in 2002 and was designed to tighten controls on the growing market in products sold under the health food heading - natural remedies, vitamin supplements and mineral plant extracts.
If you wish to preserve your right to purchase natural remedies, vitamin supplements and mineral plant extracts with out a doctors prescription, I suggest you contact you local legislators and become proactive. As for Steviva Brands, we will continue our efforts to push the FDA to loosen restrictions on stevia as a sweetener and we will always deliver the finest stevia available on the market.
