According to the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform, more than 150 class-action lawsuits were filed between 2011 and 2014 because of food labeling practices. Pending FDA changes to the Nutrition Facts Label and the forthcoming 2015 Dietary Guidelines are just some of the major regulatory and policy changes that are impacting the food & beverage industry. Food labeling requirements in the U.S. are constantly being redefined and you need to stay ahead of the curve.

This course will provide you with the foundation needed to examine the legal naming of a food product, list its ingredients, present its nutritional details, and make claims related to nutrient content, health effects, and production method.
