In effort to improve American diets, the Food and Drug Administration has made reliable nutrition labeling of food products a top priority.
Transparency of food ingredients and nutritional value is critical given the high rate of diabetes, and diet-related diseases in the United States. In response, there is a new front-of-package labeling initiative for food products.
“The FDA soon will propose guidance for the industry regarding nutrition labeling on the front of food packages, and plans to work collaboratively with the food industry to design and implement innovative approaches to front-of-package labeling that can help consumers choose healthy diets.” (www.fda.gov/food/labelingnutrition/ucm202726.htm)
These front-of-package labels are becoming more popular, and soon they will be an industry standard. Let us help you prepare to display your product’s nutritional information up front with our reduced calorie, and sugar-free ingredients.
