MetadataShow full item record
The Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety (Vitenskapskomiteen for mattrygghet, VKM) has, at the request of the Norwegian Food Safety Authority (Mattilsynet; NFSA), assessed the risk associated with magnesium in food supplements. VKM is requested to evaluate upper tolerable intake levels for magnesium and high and low intakes in the Norwegian population. Pending establishment of common maximum limits in the EU, the NFSA is evaluating the national maximum limits for vitamins and minerals in food supplements. This risk assessment is the scientific basis for NFSA's evaluation of national limits for magnesium.
