Academy Urges Clarification: Added Sugar Information Recommended for Labels

10/12/2018 - Honey, maple syrup and other single-ingredient sweeteners are exempt from new Food and Drug Administration requirements that products list "Added Sugars" on the Nutrition Facts Panel.

To help consumers understand the information, the Academy and other public health organizations asked the FDA to maintain clear and specific labeling requirements for the percent daily value on the "Total Sugars" line and to use the term "Sugars" in place of "Total Sugars."
