Quantitative Declarations Outside the Nutrition Facts Table

Complete text

The energy value and the amount of many nutrients are required (or permitted) to be declared inside the Nutrition Facts table (NFT). However, quantitative declarations of energy value and the amount of nutrients per serving of stated size are also permitted outside the Nutrition Facts table, on labels or in advertisements [B.01.301, FDR].

Foods usually exempt from carrying a Nutrition Facts Table will lose their exemption upon including a quantitative declaration on the label. Foods always exempt from carrying a Nutrition Facts Table will never lose their exemption when a quantitative statement is made.
