FDA Nutrition Facts label compliance
New FDA regulation about Nutrition Facts labels
On May 20, 2016, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published a number of changes to the nutrition label for packaged foods. All food manufacturers and other companies like convenience stores and fitness clubs who package foods on site, and commissaries that prepare and package foods sold in convenience stores will have to comply with the regulation by July 26, 2018 (manufacturers who make less than $10 million in annual food sales have an additional year to update their labels).
After several decades, the nutrition facts label is getting a new look to reflect new scientific findings in the fields of nutrition and health care. New label facts acknowledge the link between diet and chronic diseases such as obesity and heart disease and provide additional information aimed at helping the consumers make informed decisions about the food they eat.
