The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given manufacturers a deadline to implement Nutrition labelling changes, and it is fast approaching. For most manufacturers, January 1, 2020 is the date for compliance to the new Nutrition facts label.
What types of changes can you expect to see?
- Updated serving sizes to better reflect how much people are eating.
- Larger and bold font for Calories and Serving Size, to help get important information upon first glance.
- Updated nutrient declarations – Vitamin A and C are no longer mandatory, but Vitamin D, potassium, and “added sugars” are.
- Revised nutrient values used to calculate the % Daily Value.
