Now that the FDA has released its comprehensive guidance on the new nutrition facts format and the other things like RACCs, DVs, and RDIs that have changed along with it, I’ve updated my original  FDA Food Labeling Guide Made Easy article. So now you have all you need again in one place.

The updated article covers both the old nutrition facts format as well as the new, since you have until July 26, 2018 (or July 26, 2019 for manufacturers with less than $10 million in annual food sales) to start displaying the new nutrition facts format on your packages.

If you have any questions about this, you can leave them in the comments below!

    Lots of terrific advice! Is there a document outlining some of the acceptable deviations you list in your article for the new guidelines (condensed font permitted, usage of the linear format if labeling area is less than 40 sq inches, etc.) or did an FDA rep personally assist you?
