NDL will continue to expand and improve the Dietary Supplement Ingredient Database (DSID) by adding information about omega-3 fatty acids and prenatal multivitamins. Data will be obtained through USDA-directed contracts with commercial labs and collaborative agreements with universities and other government labs. Commercial labs will be selected in a competitive process according to their use of valid methods and quality control procedures for individual ingredients in dietary supplement matrices. Efforts will continue to optimize methods of data dissemination in keeping with rapidly changing computer and internet technology.
