ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the new label regulations released by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which went into effect on January 1, 2006. In 1994, the FDA mandated food manufacturers to provide nutrition facts on labels of most packaged foods. As of January 1, new label laws went into effect to identify potential allergy-causing ingredients and the amount of trans-fats in foods.
