Exemptions from Nutrition Labeling

A blog states that all food and beverage products, including bottled water, must have a nutrition label.


This is incorrect. The US FDA allows various exemptions from nutrition labeling. One is a small business exemption, and another is for foods and beverages with no nutritional value, such as plain bottled water. But any exemption is waived when a nutrient or health claim (e.g., “low sodium”) is made -- a Nutrition Facts panel is required to substantiate the claim.
