Upcoming Changes

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has changed the regulations for the nutrition and supplement facts panels in order to combat some of the health problems in the country and provide people with better solutions. Its goal is “to assist consumers in maintaining healthy dietary practices.”

In addition to material covered in the regulation itself, FDA has also responded to questions and comments from the public. The federal register publication is over 200 pages long, and much of the regulation interpretation can be found in FDA responses to comments.

While the media has focused mostly on the sweeping changes to sugars and fibers in the nutrition facts panels, there are also significant changes to the recommended daily intakes for vitamins and minerals.

A draft guidance published in January of 2017 answers twenty questions about compliance dates, added sugars, and the declaration of quantitative amounts of vitamins and minerals. Other regulations will need to be updated based on the final ruling, “Food Labeling: Revision of the Nutrition and Supplement Facts Labels.” FDA has said that these other regulations will be updated at a later date.
