The Norwegian Food Safety Authority (NFSA, Mattilsynet) has requested the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety (VKM) to assess the intake of iron zinc in the Norwegian population in relation to tolerable upper intake levels (ULs). The existing maximum limit for zinc in food supplements is 25 mg/day. VKM has also conducted scenario calculations to illustrate the consequences of amending the maximum limit to 1, 2, 5, 10, 15 or 20 mg/day.
