July 2019 eNews | FDA Final Guidance on Single-Ingredient Sugar Products


The FDA released the latest guidance on the labeling of single-ingredient sugar products

FDA released a final guidance document to clarify how to display Added Sugars on the Nutrition Facts panel for single-ingredient sugar products, such as table sugar, honey, maple syrup, etc. The agency did so to clear up ambiguity from the Farm Bill’s requirement that said single-ingredient sugar products do not have to say “Includes Xg Added Sugars.” We have incorporated that change into Genesis R&D and you can read more about the update here.
