"Antioxidant" trail mix with no antioxidant content showing

An "antioxidant" trail mix containing nuts, seeds and dried fruit needs to actually contain antioxidants and show how much...


The Nutrition Facts panel for this product does not include nutrient content/data for any antioxidants (there are three vitamins and one mineral that qualify for the claim, if at sufficient levels per serving). One of the nut ingredients does contribute significant antioxidant content, but without substantiation it is not permissible to make a claim (explicit or implied) for a nutrient. All they needed to do was include data for that nutrient on the label.
