Research Project: USDA Dietary Supplement Ingredient Database

Location: Nutrient Data Laboratory

2017 Annual Report

4. Accomplishments
1. The Dietary Supplement Ingredient Database (DSID)-4 was released in FY 2017. The DSID provides national estimates of ingredient content for commonly reported dietary supplements (DS). These estimates transform label ingredient amounts into amounts predicted by the results of chemical analysis of nationally representative products. In release 4.0, we expanded the DSID to include botanical DS and we report on our second national study of adult MVMs, with links to the appropriate NHANES data files and a new online calculator. For adult MVMs, we report national estimates of ingredient content for vitamin A, vitamin D and chromium for the first time. The DSID statistically predicted mean estimates are a tool which can be used to more precisely calculate the nutrient intake from DS in population based studies.
