The parties jointly announce today that they have reached a settlement of a lawsuit pending in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.

The Sugar Association is raising serious concerns about the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) proposal to require an “added sugars” declaration and daily reference value (DRV) on the Nutrition Facts Label (NFL).

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has an important role in our nation’s food supply to ensure that consumers are not misled by positive or negative claims about the food and beverages they purchase and consume. In doing so, their mandate is to use robust and comprehensive scientific evidence as the basis of their recommendations. Unfortunately, from an initial review of their supplemental proposal to require a declaration of the percent daily value for “added sugars,” it appears they are making assertions that lack adequate scientific evidence.

The Sugar Association (SAI) has filed comments in response to the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee’s (DCAC) recent recommendations, raising concerns about new guidance on “added sugars” and the manner by which these recommendations were derived.
