Is anyone aware of a legal or regulatory definition of the term "simple"? Our Marketing group would like to use the term on our confectionery products. We already rejected the term "simple ingredients".
I haven't been able to find a definition from FDA so I assume that this falls under the "truthful" and "not misleading" labeling clause. I also assume that the definition might have to come from litigation or legal precedent.
Any guidance on how I can justify (or not) the use of the term?
