Carbohydrate labeling is tricky

Filed under: Business — @ March 5, 2004

The Food Consulting Company is trying to stir up business by warning companies that labeling items for carbohydrates is tricky:

bq. FDA regulations for nutrient content claims permit labels to describe the level of certain nutrients in a product using the term low, but FDA has not established values for carbohydrate in relation to claims; therefore, the term “low” cannot be used in association with the term carbohydrate or “carb” on food labels.
