10 Daily: ‘Unprecedented’ Crackdown Could ‘Devastate’ Australian Fitness Industry

Manufacturers have sounded the alarm that protein powders, diet bars, meal replacement shakes, sleep aids and even electrolyte sports drinks could disappear from shelves, after the Therapeutic Goods Administration¬†flagged a possible “clarification”¬†which would see “certain sports supplements” classed as medicines instead of foods.

Nutritionist and supplement industry spokesperson Stephen Eddey claims this would be a fundamental and “unprecedented” shift, requiring urgent and expensive changes to products currently sold on supermarket shelves.
