FDA Publishes Industry Resources re the New Nutrition Labeling Requirements; Many Questions Remain Unanswered

Posted by Lisa Capote | Sep 30, 2016 | 0 Comments

A new web page was announced on 4 August last by the FDA to provide the industry with information on the new regulation on the nutritional information and sizes of portions in the labels.

Currently the update of the labels is voluntary, this until 26 July 2018 or 26 July 2019 for companies with sales under $10 million. Further the FDA plans to issue new regulations in regards to the annual sales of food.

The quality of the graphics is much better (See 21 C.F.R. §§ 101.9 and 101.36), also the FDA includes a scale model of the Nutritional Information where it represents the format, the thickness of the lines, font and the main specifications which were previously contained in appendix B of 21 C.F.R. Part 101.
The FDA has responded questions however replied that additional guides for more specifics will be later developed.
