FDA Releases Updated Food Labeling Guidance

FDA Releases Updated Food Labeling Guidance

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently released an updated version of its Food Labeling Guide, which replaces the September 1994 version and provides new information on allergen labeling, trans fat labeling, qualified health claims and structure/function claims. Using a question-and-answer format, the guide also includes updated information on product name, net contents statements, ingredient listing, nutrition labeling and claims. While considered guidance, the FDA document summarizes regulatory and legal requirements for labeling statements. To view the document, click here. Members with questions may contact Michelle Matto, IDFA assistant director for nutrition and labeling, at 202-737-4332.
