Health Canada Introduces New Labeling Rules

Health Canada has published new labeling rules for supplemented foods including snacks and beverages fortified with vitamins and minerals and caffeinated energy drinks. Also introduced were new labeling regulations for prepackaged foods requiring a front-of-pack symbol for foods high in saturated fat, sugar, or sodium. Supplemented foods already on the market with a TMA (temporary marketing authorization) or application already submitted by July 21, 2022, will have until December 31, 2025, to comply with the new regulations. Under the new regulations, all supplemented foods must have a standardized Food Facts Nutrition table that includes information about added ingredients, conditions for use, and relevant cautionary statements.
