Presentation: Risk Assessment of chamomile as a tea ingredient without new animal tests

In China, a novel food ingredient is defined as the food ingredient that is not traditionally consumed in the country, and such an ingredient can come from: animals, plants, microorganisms, etc. It is suggested in guidelines across the globe, where animal data is not a mandatory requirement, that a case-by-case approach be applied, rather than a checklist approach to assess the risk of novel food ingredients. In this presentation, the risk assessment of novel food ingredients based on History of Safe Use (HoSU) and existing toxicological data is introduced, with the method then applied to assess the risk of chamomile as a tea ingredient in China.
