The Dietary Supplement Ingredient Database (DSID) provides estimated levels of ingredients in dietary supplement products sold in the United States. These statistically predicted estimates may differ from labeled amounts and are based on chemical analysis of nationally representative products. The DSID was developed by the Methods and Application of Food Composition Laboratory, US Department of Agriculture, in collaboration with the Office of Dietary Supplements at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other federal agencies.
DSID-4 reports national estimates of ingredient content in adult, children’s and non-prescription prenatal multivitamin/mineral (MVMs) and omega-3 fatty acid supplements.
New! Analytically-validated mean estimates for vitamin D, vitamin A and chromium in adult MVMs are reported for the first time, and estimates for 18 other ingredients have been calculated based on a new, second study of representative adult MVMs. DSID-4 also reports results for the first DSID study of botanical dietary supplements. The “Green Tea Research Summary and Results" are available on the 'Botanicals' page.
The DSID is intended primarily for research applications. These data are appropriate for use in population studies of nutrient intake rather than for assessing content of individual products.
