Academy Supports FDA Finalizing Proposed Rule on Food Standards and Modernization

07/24/2020 - The Academy supports the work of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in establishing a set of general principles for food standards for FDA to use when considering whether to establish, revise, or eliminate a food standard that are consistent with the Academy’s own labeling principles.

Modernizing standards of identity and certain labeling requirements can incentivize reformulation of food to healthier options that appeal to the public and provide consumers with valuable information to promote understanding.
