The FDA is investigating changes to Food Labels

Read Food Labels PamphletThe Food and Drug Administration is looking into changing how they label foods. One of the biggest changes is more realistic measurements – for example, they now give nutritional information on 20 ounces of soda on a 20-ounce bottle, rather than listing information for 8 ounce servings. After all, if you have purchased a 20 ounce bottle, you probably plan to drink 20 ounces. It makes perfect sense. Also there are just some small changes that make the labels easier to read – bigger letters and better organization.

CNN details some of the nutritional changes…

The proposed labels would remove the “calories from fat” line you currently see on labels, focusing instead on total calories found in each serving. Nutritionists have come to understand that the type of fat you’re eating matters more than the calories from fat. As such, the breakdown of total fat vs. saturated and trans fat would remain.

Put down that doughnut: FDA takes on trans fat

The proposed labels would also note how much added sugar is in a product. Right now, it’s hard to know what is naturally occurring sugar and what has been added by the manufacturer.

“Now when Americans pull a product from the supermarket shelf, they will have a clear idea of how much sugar that product really contains,” American Heart Association CEO Nancy Brown said.

The changes aren’t a sure thing yet – it’s still in the works, but we wanted to send a heads up…

With this announcement, the FDA has opened a 90-day comment period, during which experts and members of the public can provide input on the proposed rules. The FDA will then issue a final rule. Officials said they hope to complete the process this year.

Manufacturing companies will then have two years to implement the changes.

Nutrition labels have remained pretty much the same for decades. It wasn’t until the late 1960s that most food labels listed any nutrition information.

We’re keeping an eye on the changes and are already working on researching updates to our range of products on reading food labels. We’ll be sure to post any updates we learn about.
