The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a notice about a collection of information titled “Experimental Study on Consumer Responses to Nutrition Facts Labels with Various Footnote Formats and Declaration of Amount of Added Sugars” that the agency has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget for review. FDA reported that it plans to use the information to promote public health and explore consumer responses to various food label formats for the footnote section of the Nutrition Facts label, including “those that exhibit information such as a description of percent Daily Value, a succinct statement about daily caloric intake, a general guideline for interpreting percent Daily Values, or a footnote about nutrients whose daily intake should be limited.” This study will also reportedly explore “how declaring the added sugars content of foods might affect consumers’ attention to and understanding of the sugars and calorie contents and other information on the Nutrition Facts label.” FDA will accept comments on the information until July 1, 2013.
