Program Description

All webinars are delivered in Eastern Standard Time (EST).

U.S. FDA has revised the Nutrition Facts label for packaged foods. The new Nutrition Facts label is designed to help consumers easily locate the specific nutrient information which drives better-informed food choices. The FDA modernized Nutrition Facts label for Packaged Foods continues, separately, from the hold placed on the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Nutrition Facts label revision.

Join us for this online session and learn about the FDA Nutrition Facts label changes from the experts, including the scientific rationale behind the changes, the results of the FDA’s consumer research, the type of information required to substantiate particular Nutrition Facts label declarations, the FDA’s definition of an added sugar and its new definition of dietary fiber, and how to prepare to ensure compliance.
