According to this Nutraceuticals are classified as (a) the vitamins and minerals (b) the Amino acids (c) the Plants or botanicals (d) the substances from animal origin and (e) the nutraceuticals as specified in Schedule IX of these regulations, which may be used in the manufacture of food containing nutraceuticals without prejudice to modifications for one or more of these nutrients rendered necessary by the intended use of the product. The objective of this paper is to assessment the regulatory structure and status of regulation of currently issued guidelines for nutraceuticals in India. The survey study was divided in two phases. First phase of study was surveying the awareness and value of nutraceuticals in physicians and the objective of second phase were focused to product and sale of nutraceuticals.
