  • [music] Hi I'm Emily, the Registered Dietitian for

  • RL Food Testing.

  • The New Nutrition Facts Label is here.

  • The FDA has issued their final regulations for the updated Nutrition Label.

  • These are the biggest changes to come to the label since their origin some twenty-five

  • years ago.

  • Now, a lot has changed and I want to walk you through those changes.

  • But first, here are the top two things you need to know.

  • One: these changes to the nutrition label may impact how your food product's nutrition

  • appears to consumers; as a result, you may want to consider marketing changes or even

  • reformulations if you feel the new label may affect those messages.

  • Two: do not put this off, get going on it now.

  • It may take your company longer than you think to make the switch and the sooner you have

  • the new label on the shelves, the better.

  • This change was consumer driven and they are antsy to have it in their hands; as a result,

  • retailers will be anxious to get it on their shelves.

  • Let's take a look at the detailed changes and how they affect your food product.

  • Probably the most obvious of the changes is the redesign of the label to focus more on

  • calories and servings per container.

  • This includes a larger font size for calories as well as a more prominent placement.

  • The RACCs or recommended serving sizes have also been updated to reflect a more realistic

  • representation of what we are eating in one sitting.

  • For example, a serving of ice cream will now be listed as two-thirds cup instead of half

  • a cup.

  • Therefore, a pint of ice cream will now be declared as three servings per container instead

  • of four.

  • The Daily Values, or DVs, have been updated, some of these include DVs for sodium and fiber.

  • Daily Values are the nutrient reference values based on age groups, that we use to calculate

  • the percent DV that is shown on nutrition labels.

  • Sugars that do not occur naturally in food but are added by the manufacturer must now

  • be declared under Added Sugars, which has been added as a required nutrient.

  • A percent DV of 50g has been established for adults, and a list for added sugars has been

  • provided by the FDA.

  • Calories from Fat and Other Carbohydrates have been removed from the label.

  • Dietary Fiber has been defined as a non-digestible carbohydrate and fibers that are beneficial

  • to human health may be reported on the label.

  • Vitamins A and C are no longer required, and have been replaced with Vitamin D and Potassium.

  • Twenty-five years ago, public consumption of Vitamins A and C were found to be inadequate.

  • Recent studies show they are no longer of concern, but Vitamin D and Potassium are.

  • As such, these new guidelines for nutrient reporting reflect more current data.

  • The foot note table has been removed and a statement has been added to explain what DVs

  • mean.

  • Finally, a dual column label will be required for some packages.

  • Products requiring this dual label include: One, a product that needs further preparation,

  • like a dry cake mix or pasta.

  • Two, a product commonly combined with other ingredients like adding cereal to milk.

  • Three, a product needing to show the percent DV for two different RDI's, for example both

  • a child and an adult.

  • Four, a product that has two serving sizes, therefore will need to show nutrition information

  • for both.

  • Five, a product that has two to three servings are now required to use the Dual Column label

  • to show nutrition information for a single serving and for the whole container.

  • The FDA's examples are a 24-ounce bottle of soda or a pint of ice cream.

  • Six, of note, a product that is packaged and sold individually and contains less than two

  • servings is now to be labeled as a single serving.

  • Previously, for packages that contained less than two servings you could list "About 2

  • Servings" now it must be listed as 1 serving per container.

  • The compliance date is July 26th, 2018.

  • However, food manufacturers with less than $10 million in annual food sales will have one

  • additional year to comply.

  • So, what does all this mean for your food product?

  • Many of these changes may impact how your food product's nutrition will appear to

  • consumers.

  • For example, a larger serving size may increase your calories displayed, while the new fiber

  • definitions may lower your fiber declaration, and the new added sugars declaration may highlight

  • undesired nutrients.

  • Food manufacturers may want to reformulate some of their products to better position

  • how their products will appear to consumers.

  • Finally, detailed record keeping will now be required for certain nutrients.

  • Because there are no analytical methods currently available for some of these, for example Added

  • Sugars or Dietary Fiber, the FDA is requiring records to be kept by the manufacturer for

  • at least two years.

  • So what should you be doing now?

  • Perhaps one of the biggest mistakes a food manufacturer can make is to wait.

  • Whether you are an existing RL Food Testing customer or new to our family, get started

  • right now and give us a call.

  • We will take a look at your food product and be able to tell you how these new changes

  • will affect your labeling the most.

  • This is a really exciting time for all of us in the food business and maybe a little

  • scary too.

  • We at RL Food Testing want to help our customers navigate these changes with ease.

  • You can visit our website for more information and feel free to give us a call too.

  • We look forward to hearing from you soon.

  • Thanks so much for listening! [music]
