Summary: Food Labeling: Revision of The Nutrition and Supplement Facts Labels and Food Labeling: Serving Sizes of Foods That Can Reasonably Be Consumed at One Eating Occasion; Dual-Column Labeling; Updating, Modifying, and Establishing Certain Reference Amounts Customarily Consumed; Serving Size for Breath Mints; and Technical Amendments

Summary: Food Labeling: Revision of The Nutrition and Supplement Facts Labels and Food Labeling: Serving Sizes of Foods That Can Reasonably Be Consumed at One Eating Occasion; Dual-Column Labeling; Updating, Modifying, and Establishing Certain Reference Amounts Customarily Consumed; Serving Size for Breath Mints; and Technical Amendments

The Proposed Nutrition Facts and Supplement Facts Labels Rule (the Proposed NFL Rule) proposed amendments to our labeling regulations for conventional foods and dietary supplements to provide updated nutrition information on the label to assist consumers in maintaining healthy dietary practices. Through a supplemental notice, we are proposing revisions to the Proposed NFL Rule that would amend our labeling regulations for conventional foods and dietary supplements, including proposing text for the footnote to be used on the Nutrition Facts label, and exemptions to the proposed footnote requirement as well as proposing that manufacturers declare, in addition to the absolute amount of added sugars, the percent DV for added sugars on the Nutrition Facts and Supplement Facts labels. In total, we estimate that these proposed rules will generate annualized costs of $0.2 billion (at both 3 and 7 percent discount rates) and annualized benefits of $2.1 billion (at 7 percent) and $2.3 billion (at 3 percent). This represents an annual increase in net benefits from the original PRIA’s estimates of approximately $0.2 billion per year.
