The US Pharmacopoeia (USP), in expanding its scope beyond dietary supplements and prescription and over the counter medicines, has taken on the publication of the sixth edition of the Food Chemicals Codex. The publication, which in part addresses flavorings, will subsequently be published every other year, with supplements launched on alternate years. While the Codex is not reflected in law in the United States (as it is in countries such as Canada and Brazil), the USP will work with food manufacturers to "gain adherence."
