FDA Proposes Updates To Food Labels

January 24, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
The FDA has sent two proposals for food label revisions to the White House for review. The proposed changes – the first in 21 years – are likely to take into account the trends and developments in food and health that have occurred since the last revisions in 1993, especially the emphasis on obesity. According to Bloomberg, the new labels will probably feature calories more prominently, highlight natural versus added sugar content, and make serving sizes conform to reality. Once approved by the Obama administration, the label changes will be published for public comment.
