Old Dietary Supplement

I’m wondering where people go to justify their ingredient is ODI.
Example, Echinacea is very popular - I haven’t seen an NDI for it. It is not GRAS per 21cfr (at I least I don’t think so). So where are these people getting marketing information that dates back to 1994?

FDA clearly states sources like Herbs of Commerce or the unofficial “Grandfathered” list from CRN are not sources for proof.

Since it’s such a common ingredient, I agree with my superiors it is “low risk” but am not comfortable without anything backing up that our ingredient is ODI…
