The new Dietary Reference Intakes in food labeling: the food industry's perspective

The new Dietary Reference Intakes in food labeling: the food industry's perspective

American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 83(5): 1231s-1234s

The food industry appreciates the complexity of applying the new Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) in labeling. The industry is prepared to update food labels to reflect new nutrient recommendations and views upcoming changes as an opportunity to harmonize nutrition information across the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005, MyPyramid.gov, and the food label. Members of the Grocery Manufacturers Association are unanimous in their belief that the food label be as useful to consumers as possible. This article raises discussion points, issues, and implications associated with implementation of the new DRIs on the food label.
