Early this month, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration officially began the process of revamping its decades-old definition of “healthy.”
FDA is now seeking public input on what the term “healthy” should mean and how consumers understand the term when it’s applied to food labels. They are seeking comment generally, and as a nutrient content claim in the context of food labeling and on specific questions contained in this document.
To give public input, please visit the FDA site. Comments are due by January 26, 2017.
