Nutrition Facts labels of pure maple syrup and honey

FDA Commissioner, Scott Gottlieb, has announced a major overhaul of the FDA’s update to the Nutrition Facts label on products. This overhaul, the first in nearly twenty years, is aimed at empowering consumers by furnishing information on Nutrition Facts labels pure maple syrup and honey that ensures greater accuracy and is more science-based. With this, the FDA wants to help consumers make more informed and healthier choices.

This update to the Nutrition Facts label has incorporated the latest information available with the FDA on nutritional science and is being done with the intention of helping reduce the brunt of chronic lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and heart disease.

It expands the 2016 Final Rule and updates the Nutrition Facts label that lists added sugars. These are the areas where the update makes the Nutrition Facts label different:

  • While the old label simply listed the total grams of sugar and did not distinguish between naturally occurring sugars, such as in fruits and vegetables on the one hand and sugars that match the definition of added sugars as set out by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans on the other, the new one does
  • These guidelines define what constitutes added sugars. Aimed at assisting federal nutrition policies with defining added sugars as caloric sweeteners, these guidelines bring not only sugar, but also honey and maple syrup as well as other sweeteners into their sweep

The need for the update

The main aim of this update on overhaul of the FDA’s update to the Nutrition Facts label on products is to increase the awareness of consumers with the right quantity of added sugars in food products that are consistent with recent dietary guideline recommendations. This updated Nutrition Facts Label, in also containing the new daily value for added sugars to help consumers better understand the ways in which foods with added sugars can become part of a healthy dietary pattern; is an important part of this effort.

Added sugars being a part of a healthy diet pattern per se are not detrimental to health. The problem arises when added sugars make up more than a tenth of a person’s total daily calories. This makes meeting nutrient needs while staying within calorie limits difficult. This has been amply demonstrated in the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
