Prohibitions

Foods Prohibited from Carrying a Nutrition Facts Table

The following foods are specifically prohibited from displaying a Nutrition Facts table [B.01.401(4) and B.01.401(5), FDR]:

These products have their own nutrition labelling requirements that are different from those of the Nutrition Facts table. Consequently, they are prohibited from using the Nutrition Facts table and the titles "Nutrition Facts", "Valeur nutritive" or "Valeurs nutritives" [B.01.401(4), B.01.401(5), FDR]. However, they may adopt the Nutrition Facts table format with respect to the order of presentation, naming of nutrients, fonts, layout, etc. to display their nutrition information. Another reasonable heading such as "Nutrition Information" is permitted. See Divisions 24 and 25, FDR for more information on the labelling of these products.
