Added Sugar Final Comment to FDA
Re: Comment on Food Labeling: Revision of the Nutrition and Supplement Facts Labels; Supplemental Proposed Rule to Solicit Comment on Limited Additional Provisions, Docket No. FDA-2012-N-1210
The Center for Science in the Public Interest strongly supports the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) supplemental proposal to revise the Nutrition and Supplements Facts labels by setting a Daily Value (DV) for added sugars, adding a percent DV for added sugars, and other additional changes to its 2014 proposal. We also make other recommendations below. This comment supplements, but does not replace, CSPI’s earlier comment to the 2014 docket concerning the Nutrition Facts Panel (NFP).
