The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has required that all dietary supplement products include updated labeling by January 2021, a move aimed at addressing the evolution of the American diet.
Dietary supplements help people get the nutrients they need to thrive, and 77 percent of Americans take them, according to the Council for Responsible Nutrition. However, experts advise that to make smart choices down the line, it is necessary to understand changes being made to product labels.
“The Food and Drug Administration has mandated that all dietary supplement products feature updated labeling by January 2021 to reflect the evolution of the American diet, as well as advancements in nutrition science,” said Brian Wommack, the Council for Responsible Nutrition’s senior vice president of communications. “Larger manufacturers will comply by January 2020, and many other manufacturers will be introducing the new labels early, so it’s smart for everyone to get familiar with the updates now.”
