Influence and suggestion

Due to the limited dosage forms, many nutrition supplements cannot apply for health food filing, even though their product formula are compliant under the requirements of health food filing. As we know, gelation candy is one of the most popular dosage forms for nutrition supplements at home and abroad, therefore, once gelatin candy get the final approval for health food filing, a great number of nutrition supplements under this dosage form can apply for health food filing in China.

For relevant enterprises interested in China market, it is recommended to carry out some preparations in advance, such as formula feasibility analysis, health food filing system account application (for new filing applicant), etc. Once the gelation candy is officially approved, you can start the filing application as soon as possible.
