Voluntary Sodium Reduction Targets Draft Guidance

FDA hosted a webinar on Tuesday, June 21, 2016 to help the public understand the Voluntary Sodium Reduction Targets Draft Guidance, why it’s important, and areas where the agency is seeking comment. The draft guidance will provide the FDA and the food industry with a common system for defining and measuring progress in reducing sodium in the food supply. The FDA is issuing short-term (2 year) and long-term (10 year) draft targets to help the American public gradually reduce sodium intake to 2,300 milligrams (mg) per day.

Candy Taxes Across the USA

NAC has obtained a schedule and map of how sales taxes on candy are applied state-by-state across the nation.

This information is courtesy of the National Confectioners Association (NCA).

The sales taxes are broken down by states who treat candy as groceries, states who treat candy differently than groceries and states with no sales tax on candy at all. The schedule also defines how the states treat soda.
