After more than two years, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently finalized the proposed labeling changes regarding the nutrition information displayed on food, beverages, and dietary supplements. These revisions constitute some significant changes to both the cosmetic look of the Nutrition Facts and Supplement Facts panels, as well as the information being provided to consumers. Among the changes are:
Additionally, the FDA announced changes to the Recommended Amounts Customarily Consumed (RACC) and the manner in which serving sizes and servings per container are determined. Foods like ice cream, fish, and beverages other than milk and juice products, have updated serving sizes based on consumer consumption information.
The regulations addressing these revisions to labeling becomes effective on July 26, 2016 and companies may start revising labels at that time. All companies must be in compliance by July 26, 2018 or July 26, 2019, depending on total sales of the company. Accordingly, companies must be aware of these changes and how they will affect their products.
This session with expert speaker Justin J. Prochnow will help you understand the latest FDA revisions to the labeling requirements for food, beverages and dietary supplements and help you ensure compliance with the regulations.
