FDA Issues Draft Guidances on Nutrition Labeling

January 5, 2017, Covington Alert

Yesterday, FDA issued a long-anticipated draft guidance intended to help industry comply with the agency’s May 2016 final rules modernizing nutrition labeling. Presented in a question-and-answer format, the draft guidance (Q&A Draft Guidance) provides information related to the compliance date, labeling of added sugars, rounding of the declaration of quantitative amounts of vitamins and minerals, and label format. Notably, it does not address the issue of dietary fiber, which FDA defined for the first time in the new nutrition labeling regulations. Nor does it extend the current earliest compliance deadline of July 26, 2018.
