FDA to Hold Public Meeting to Discuss Intentional Adulteration Rule Draft Guidance

Dockets

FDA-1997-P-0476, Nabisco Inc. - Citizen Petition, Requests FDA Amend the Definition of Total Fat and Saturated Fat

  • ·        FDA responded to the 1997 request stating that the agency’s Proposed (79 FR 11897, 11893-11899) and Final (81 FR 33742, 33782-33786) Rules on “Food Labeling: Revision of the Nutrition and Supplement Facts Labels” provided an in-depth discussion of the citizen petition that fully addresses the issues and the agency therefore declines to amend the definitions of “Total Fat” and “Saturated Fat” to excluded the requested compounds acetic, propionic, and butyric acids.

FDA-2017-P-6245, Request that the FDA issue a regulation stating pyridoxamine is a dietary supplement as defined by the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (herein DSHEA)

  • ·        Withdrawal of citizen petition

FDA-2016-P-3620, Citizen Petition from MGP Ingredients, Inc. Requests that the FDA amend the definition of “dietary fiber” at 21 C.F.R. § 101.9(c)(6)(i) by adding Modified Wheat Starch (Fibersym® RW and FiberRite® RW) to the existing list of isolated or synthetic non-digestible carbohydrates determined by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) to have “physiological effects that are beneficial to human health.”

  • ·        MGP submitted a fourth addendum providing additional, recently obtained data providing the final results of a third human clinical study that supports a conclusion that Fibersym provides the human health benefit of reducing post-prandial blood glucose levels and postprandial blood insulin levels.
