The Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety (VKM) has, at the request of the Norwegian Food Safety Authority, assessed the risk of specified doses of L-creatine in food supplements. VKM concludes that: • In adults (> 18 years) a daily dose of 3.0 g/day creatine in food supplements is unlikely to cause adverse health effects. Doses of 5.0, 10.0 and 24.0 g/day creatine in food supplements may represent a risk of adverse health effects. • In children (10-14 years) and adolescents (14-17 years) the specified doses of 3.0, 5.0, 10.0 and 24.0 g/day creatine in food supplements may represent a risk of adverse health effects.
