Quickly adjust to the new RACCs with our free cheat sheet
Along with several other labeling changes, the FDA has issued a final rule to update and establish Reference Amounts Customarily Consumed (RACC) for food product categories. In general, the RACCs have been updated to more accurately reflect the serving sizes Americans actually eat at one sitting. For example, the RACC for soda has increased from 8 fl oz to 12 fl oz. Additionally, packages that contain 2-3 servings (between 200 and 300 percent of the RACC) must include a Dual Column label displaying information for a single serving and for the whole container.
