Informing you of important documents that affect your labelling strategies

Health Canada (HC) has proposed to amend the Food and Drug Regulations (FDR) Canada Gazette Part 1, Vol. 152, No. 6 "Regulations Amending Certain Regulations Made Under the Food and Drugs Act(Nutrition Symbols, Other Labelling Provisions, Partially Hydrogenated Oils and Vitamin D)". In conjunction with these same proposals, HC is proposing to amend the FDR by removing the Table of Nutrient Content Claims that immediately follows section B.01.513 of the FDR and incorporating by reference (IbR) into the new "Nutrition Labelling - Table of Permitted Nutrient Content Statements and Claims".  
HC will also be considering updating "free of sugars" and "no added sugars" claims, adding synonyms to the "free of saturated fatty acids", "free of trans fatty acids" and "free of sugars" claims, adding a new "low in sugars" clam and including the "unsweetened" claim in the table.
