FDA Publishes Guidance on New Nutrition Facts Label

Share Post

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has published a Nutrition Facts label Industry Resources web page to help businesses comply with the requirements of the final rules, which were issued in May 2016. Alcohol beverages that do not fall within the definition of malt beverages, wine, or distilled spirits under the Federal Alcohol Administration Act (such as wine/cider with less than 7 percent alcohol by volume, or beers that are not made with both malted barley and hops) are generally subject to the food labeling regulations issued by the FDA, including the FDA Nutrition Facts labeling regulations. Businesses have until July 26, 2018 (or July 26, 2019 for manufacturers with less than $10 million in annual food sales) to bring their Nutrition and Supplement Facts labels for packaged foods into compliance with the final rules, but may comply with the new requirements now.
