Corn Refiners Association: FDA “Healthy” Ruling Is A Step In The Right Direction

In reaction to the new proposed rule by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Corn Refiners Association (CRA) President and CEO, John Bode, issued the following statement:

“We are pleased to see FDA included added sugars as a nutrient of concern impacting the ability to use a ‘healthy’ claim in its proposed rule. Even though our industry is a major supplier of sugars, we do not encourage increased consumption as current nutrition research indicates a strong causal correlation with negative health outcomes. The scientific evidence and consumer expectations align: high-sugar foods should not be promoted as ‘healthy.’

However, the FDA missed a powerful opportunity to empower American consumers by making its food labeling more transparent. While FDA pointed to ‘healthy’ being conflated with non-nutrition factors in the proposed rule, we believe FDA can do more to educate consumers on what the term means.
