Understanding FDAs Food Nutrition Label Makeover Webinar

Understanding FDA’s Food Nutrition Label Makeover – NEW DATE

**Guest presenter added: Steve Steinborn – Partner, Food Drug Law Practice, Hogan and Lovells

In an effort to better inform consumers about food choices, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently proposed sweeping changes to nutrition labels for all packaged foods and beverage.  This is the first time FDA has updated or developed new Daily Values since 1995 and the proposed rules have the potential to involve label changes for virtually all dairy products.

If approved, the new labels would totally revamp the information on the label by placing  a larger emphasis on total calories, added sugars and change daily values for certain nutrients, including Vitamin D and potassium. The FDA is also proposing changes to serving size requirements for ice cream and other products in an effort to more accurately reflect what people usually eat or drink.

What do these changes mean for dairy products?

  • Will dairy processors still be able to make nutrient content claims, such as 'good source' or 'excellent source,' which are based on the new Daily Value amounts?
  • What impact will the changes to serving size have on yogurt and ice cream?
  • What size packages will have to include dual nutrition information for the whole container?
  • How will the new requirement for ‘added sugar’ affect dairy?

Led by IDFA’s out-side legal counsel and staff labeling experts, this webinar will provide an in-depth look at the proposed regulations and analyze the impact on dairy product labels’ nutrition facts panel and nutrition claims.  Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about these major changes and what efforts that IDFA will undertake to provide input to FDA on behalf of the dairy industry.
