Nutritional Labeling

The Nutrition Labeling Education Act (NLEA) was signed into law on January 6, 1993 and became mandatory for non-exempt food products on May 8, 1994. Primarily designed to establish a consistent format for all prepared and packaged food providers, it requires compliance regarding nutrient content and claims, label format, ingredient statements, intake values, and more. Compliance is mandatory, with some exceptions, for most food suppliers, manufacturers, importers, food service operations making nutrient or health claims, etc.

On May 27, 2016, the FDA published final rules on the new Nutrition Facts Label. The revised label rules become mandatory for most food product manufacturers as of January 1, 2020.
