Nutrition Facts Panel Requirements
The FDA requires food manufacturers who sell packaged food products to have a Nutrition Facts Panel on their packaged foods and beverages. Failing to have one may lead to removal of your products from the market.
- The Nutrition Facts Panel must show what nutrients (to limit and get enough of) are in the food product
- It must contain detailed information about the nutrient content of food, such as the amount of sugar, fat, fiber, or sodium it has
- Labels must be based on official nutritional rating systems
- It must meet the general educational purposes required by the FDA
