Responding to a call for comments regarding a draft guidance issued by the FDA in February, many public commenters have told the agency that it is "ridiculous" to insist that the sugar in a jar of honey or pure maple syrup should be listed as "added sugars" on food labels. The agency had suggested requiring manufacturers of honey or maple syrup to classify those products as added sugars , because they are used to add sweetness to foods. The FDA proposes to also use a "†" symbol immediately following the label's added sugars statement, directing consumers to "truthful and non-misleading statements" explaining no sugar was added. Response to the guidance from industry has been negative according to media outlets, and many commenters have said that even with that symbol, most consumers would incorrectly believe cane sugar or corn syrup had been added to the product, and would reject it. The deadline for filing all comments is June 15.
