FDA Updates Food Labels

Posted May 2016

On May 20, 2016, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) “. . . finalized the new Nutrition Facts label for packaged foods to reflect new scientific information, including the link between diet and chronic diseases such as obesity and heart disease. The new label will make it easier for consumers to make better informed food choices.” The look of the new label will be similar to the current design that has been used for the past 20 years. Major changes in the new label are shown in the figure below.

Students and teachers are encouraged to compare the current labels (in your textbook) to the new labels. Large manufacturers will have until July 2018 to begin using the new labels. Small manufacturers will have until July 2019 to begin using the labels. More information, including answers to questions about the new labels, is available at the website below. All quotes and the figure shown above are also from this site. http://www.fda.gov/Food/GuidanceRegulation/GuidanceDocumentsRegulatoryInformation/LabelingNutrition/ucm385663.htm#highlights
