CPG Sec 505.300 "Butter-Nut" Bread March 1988

Issued by:
Guidance Issuing Office
Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition
Office of Regulatory Affairs


Inquiries have been received about the use of the name "Butter-Nut" on the wrapper of white bread. This term has apparently been in general use since as early as World War 1. No action has ever been taken against a product because of this name.


The FDA does not have information that the labeling of bread as "Butter-Nut Bread" is misleading to consumers; therefore, no action will be instituted against a product solely because of the use of this name.

Issued: 1/24/77
Revised: 10/1/80
Reissued: 3/8/88
