FDA Issues Letter to Remind Manufacturers about Sugar-Free Labeling Claims

FDA Issues Letter to Remind Manufacturers about Sugar-Free Labeling Claims

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) last week issued a "Dear Manufacturer Letter" about the labeling regulations that apply to products claiming to be sugar free. The letter reminds companies that sugar-free labeling claims must be accompanied by additional calorie statements or must indicate that the food is not a low-calorie or reduced-calorie food. IDFA encourages members to review their product labels using sugar-free claims to ensure that they are in compliance with FDA's regulations. To read the FDA letter, click here. Members with questions can contact Michelle Matto, IDFA assistant director of regulatory affairs, at mmatto@idfa.org or 202-737-4332.
