“Digitally Manufacturing Food to Your Dietary Needs – Are Innovations Advancing Faster than the FDA Regulations are Evolving?”

Thursday, October 22, 2014 | 9:45 - 10:30 a.m. PT

Heili Kim and Claudia Lewis will present a session discussing the unique challenges associated with food, 3-D Printing, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 3-D Printing presents an opportunity for numerous innovations including the potential for individuals to customize food with tailored nutrient profiles and calorie content. Among other cutting edge innovations, companies are developing ways to monitor an individual's biostatistics and then create personalized food to match the needs of the person's health status. Importantly, the "intended use" and "claims" for the product would govern whether pre-market FDA clearance or approval is necessary for market access. The discussion will focus on how these innovations may exist within the framework of the FDA regulatory system for food, dietary supplements, drugs, and medical devices.
