FDA Proposes New Definition Of “Healthy” On Food Labels

September 29, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
The U.S. Food & Drug Administration has proposed an updated definition for the use of the term "healthy" on food labels, 25 years after creating the first regulatory definition of the word. The proposed rule will require recommended foods to emphasize nutrient dense food groups such as fruits, vegetables, grains, proteins and dairy for their nutritious contribution to a healthy diet. It will also require adding nutrient thresholds to help ensure that foods bearing the "healthy" claim do not contain excess saturated fat, sodium or added sugars.
