WHO Global Nutrition Policy Review 2009-2010
The Nutrition Labeling and Education Act of 1990 (NLEA) provides FDA with specific authority to require nutrition labeling of most foods regulated by the Agency; and to require that all nutrient content claims (i.e., 'high fiber', 'low fat', etc.) and health claims be consistent with agency regulations. Regulations implementing the NLEA labeling provisions issued on January 6, 1993, with technical amendments published on August 18, 1993.
The regulations became effective for health claims, ingredient declarations, and percent juice labeling on May 8, 1993 (percent juice labeling was subsequently exempted until May 8, 1994). The regulations for nutrition labeling and other provisions became effective on May 8, 1994. However, by an Act of Congress, these provisions do not apply to certain products until after August 8, 1994.
