Nutrition Facts Panel: FDA Unveils Big Changes

The Food and Drug Administration announced changes to the Nutrition Facts label that reflect the Academy's evidence-based recommendations. The Academy has been working with the FDA on the revisions of the Nutrition Facts panel over the last decade, focusing on promoting healthful eating.

Read the Academy's press release on the proposed label changes.

Changes to the label's format include more prominence for calories and serving size and moving the Percent Daily Value information to be more easily used by consumers. Other changes include updating serving sizes for many products to realistically reflect the amounts people actually eat at one sitting adding nutrient comparisons between "per serving" and "per container"; and making small changes to the daily value for sodium. New requirements will list vitamin D and potassium on the label, and tell consumers how much sugar is being added to a product.

The Academy is excited that so many of its recommendations over the past decade were incorporated into this proposed rule. The Academy plans to continue working with its Food and Nutrition Labeling Workgroup and dietetic practice groups to formulate formal comments to the FDA over the next three months.
