The compliance date for the revised FDA Supplement Facts label for dietary supplements of January 1, 2020 is upon us.

The FDA has modernized the dietary Supplement Facts label to reflect a wide range of influential factors, including scientific advances in dietary ingredient and nutrition information, research into consumers’ usage and application of dietary supplement and nutrition information, and the FDA’s evolving nutrition policy. The new Supplement Facts label will provide consumers with dietary ingredient and nutrition information that is both easier to understand and more accurate.

Join us for this online session and learn about the FDA’s revised Supplement Facts label from the experts, including:

  • Mandatory nutrient (b2 dietary ingredients) declarations
  • Revised recommended dietary intakes and daily reference values, including new values for children 1-3 years of age
  • The FDA’s definitions of dietary fiber and added sugars
  • Metric units of measure
  • The impact of added folic acid on a folate declaration
  • And more!

Prerequisite(s): Experience and working knowledge of Nutrition Facts label requirements and/or previous attendance at NSF’s webinar Modernized Nutrition Facts Label for Packaged Foods in the U.S.
