FDA to Redefine 'Healthy Claim' for Food Labelling-Online Webinar

Description
In order to make a 'Healthy' claim for Food Labeling and promotion, it's important to understand how FDA defines and will likely redefine the 'Healthy' claim.

In this session, the speaker will offer an overview of current FDA regulations on use of the term 'healthy' per FDA's 1993 Final Rule and why the agency intends to redefine the term in view of the evolving science related to public health recommendations for dietary intake. References to all relevant FDA regulations, Guidance documents, and FDA websites for general nutritional claims and 'Healthy' claims will be provided as well as regulatory insights.

Objectives of the Presentation
  • Background to the current FDA regulations for a 'Healthy claim' per 21 CFR 101.65(d)
  • The role of the new 2016 final rules updating the Nutrition Facts label
  • FDA's reasons for wanting to redefine the term in view of the evolving science and public health recommendations for dietary intake
  • Beneficial nutrients and FDA's view on how they relate to the definition of the term 'healthy'
  • 'Healthy' definition changes that we're likely to see
  • FDA enforcement discretion if foods do not meet the specified nutritional requirements
Why Should you Attend
Understanding food labels can sometimes feel like you're trying to crack a secret code. Manufacturers slap 'natural,' 'gluten-free' and 'fat-free' on food packages, but products may include ingredients that contradict their claims. You know to never judge a book by its cover, but with food labels it's a must. And separating the good from the bad can be tricky. That's particularly true of the term 'healthy.' Now, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is on a mission to clear up the confusion.

What complicates things: The last time FDA defined the term 'healthy' was more than 20 years ago. The current definition dates back to 1994, and a lot has changed in nutritional science since then. The government did overhaul the Nutrition Facts label this year and updated Dietary Guidelines last year. This webinar will explain criteria for the new FDA 'healthy' claim for Food Labeling and promotion.
