Title of Collaborative Activity:

Dietary Supplement Ingredient Database (DSID)

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The NIH Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) leads this program, which provides a database of basic information about the nutrient content of selected ingredients in commonly consumed types of dietary supplements, compared to label-reported ingredient levels. ODS, with collaboration from USDA, develops and maintains this database of statistical estimates—based on chemical analysis—of the nutrient content of selected ingredients in dietary supplements, compared with label-reported ingredient levels. Currently, the Dietary Supplements Ingredient Database (DSID) provides estimated levels of 18 vitamin and mineral ingredients derived from analytical data for 115 representative unspecified adult multivitamin/multimineral supplements (MVMs). Ingredients studied include children’s multivitamin/mineral supplements, non-prescription prenatal supplements, and omega-3 fatty acids. Additional dietary supplement ingredients will be included in future releases of the database.
