I searched under labeling but I don't see any topics regarding my particular query, so I shall ask now.
We're starting to see the first of customers requiring updated nutritional facts and so forth due to the final ruling from the FDA regarding the facts panel changes.
My first question is regarding the recommended daily intakes and reference values. Apparently several items are getting revised values (including dietary fiber, sodium, and Vit D). However, I am not finding what these revised values will be. Anyone have a link to this?
My second question is how to address added sugars. It's my understanding that added sugars are basically the sugars added during the process and are not naturally occurring to the product. In that instance, many processed foods will only contain added sugars, or will contain mostly added sugars. How do you determine the % Daily Value for this?
Lastly, will there be simplified versions of the label? I work in the sweetener industry and many of our products are not nutrient intensive and currently qualify for the simplified label. I don't know if that will be allowed with this new ruling.
