Manufacturers with less than $10 million in annual food sales have until January 1, 2021 to comply.
The new Nutrition Facts label is designed to provide information that can help consumers make informed choices about the food they purchase and consume.
The changes include modifying the list of required nutrients that must be declared on the label, updating serving size requirements, and providing a refreshed design.
Vitamin D and Potassium are added to the Nutrition Facts label because Vitamin D is important for its role in bone health, and Potassium helps lower blood pressure. Calcium and Iron are already required and will continue to be on the label. The actual amount (in milligrams or micrograms) in addition to the %DV must be listed for Vitamin D, Calcium, Iron, and Potassium.
“Added Sugars” in grams and as a percent Daily Value (%DV) is now required on the label.
What label statements are required on the containers and packages of dietary supplements?
- Identity (name of the dietary supplement)
- Net quantity of contents (amount of the dietary supplement)
- Nutrition labeling
- Ingredient list
- Name and place of business of the manufacturer, packer, or distributor
Additional information includes domestic telephone number to report any health issues associated with the use of the product.
