Interpretive Summary: The Dietary Supplement Ingredient Database (DSID) is a federally-funded, publically-accessible dietary supplement database that currently contains analytically derived information on micronutrients in selected adult and children’s multivitamin and mineral (MVM) supplements. Other constituents in dietary supplements products, such as botanicals are also of interest and thus are being considered for inclusion in the DSID. Thirty eight constituents, mainly botanicals were identified and prioritized by a federal interagency committee. Green tea was selected from this list as the candidate botanical for expansion of the DSID. This paper describes the process for prioritizing dietary ingredients in the DSID. It also discusses the criteria for inclusion of these ingredients.
