FDA Comments on Nutrition Symbols Public Hearing

FDA developed a memorandum discussing the agency’s September 2007 Public Hearing, Use of Symbols to Communicate Nutrition Information, Consideration of Consumer Studies and Nutritional Criteria. The memorandum responds to the comments submitted and presented by participants of the public hearing.

The document also explains the FDA still lacks sufficient data to answer all the questions surrounding the use of front-of-pack nutrition symbols. In particular, FDA received little information on consumer understanding and use of nutrition symbols or the economic impacts of nutrition symbols on food labels.

The full document is available here.
