NZ food classification laws give us limited options with how to label this innovative new product. It can’t be a “food” as it contains more vitamins and minerals than “food” is allowed to have (bizarre). As it provides a balanced and complete nutritional meal, based on the scientific facts provided by the Ministry of Health, theoretically you can be super healthy eating this product alone, but saying so on the label is not allowed, unless listed as a medical product, which requires a doctor to sign off on you eating it (bizarre). The closest food code classification for Sipreme is “Formulated Meal Replacement”. However, that requires a “Not to be used as a sole source of nutrition” note to be added to the product. As far as we can tell, this is because formulated meal replacements are not required to have all the nutrients the body needs, only some of them (around 25%). So with that all said – if you do want to use Sipreme as a sole source of food, you should consult with your doctor to make sure you’re being healthy and safe.
