Brazil Announced New Regulations on Nutritional Labeling

The National Agency of Sanitary Surveillance (ANVISA) published new regulations on the nutrition labeling of packaged food products.  The most critical change is the inclusion of alerts for high levels of sugar, saturated fat, and sodium which must now be shown on the front panel of food and beverage products.  The new labeling model does not include warnings for non-caloric sweeteners.  The new regulation takes effect 24 months following publication.
