SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background In the Federal Register of September 28, 2016, we published a document inviting public comment on the possibility of redefining the ‘‘healthy’’ nutrient content claim for food labeling (81 FR 66562). This action was E:\FR\FM\16FEP1.SGM 16FEP1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 31 / Thursday, February 16, 2017 / Proposed Rules consistent with our recently released 2016–2025 Foods and Veterinary Medicine (FVM) Program’s strategic plan with specific goals for nutrition and other planned and recent activity including the issuance of final rules updating certain of our nutrition labeling regulations. The document also contained several specific questions on which we sought input (81 FR 66562 at 66564 to 66565). In the Federal Register of December 30, 2016, we published a document extending the comment period for the docket to receive information and comments on the use of the term ‘‘healthy’’ in the labeling of human food (81 FR 96404); the comment period, which was originally scheduled to end on January 26, 2017, was extended to April 26, 2017. We also recently announced the availability of a guidance for industry entitled ‘‘Use of the Term ‘Healthy’ in the Labeling of Human Food Products: Guidance to Industry’’ (81 FR 66527). The guidance advises manufacturers who wish to use the implied nutrient content claim ‘‘healthy’’ to label their food products as provided by our regulations. More specifically, the guidance advises food manufacturers of FDA’s intent to exercise enforcement discretion with respect to the implied nutrient content claim ‘‘healthy’’ on foods that have a fat profile of predominantly mono and polyunsaturated fats, but do not meet the regulatory definition of ‘‘low fat,’’ or that contain at least 10 percent of the Daily Value (DV) per reference amount customarily consumed (RACC) of potassium or vitamin D. In addition, we received a citizen petition asking that we update, among other things, our nutrient content claim regulations to be consistent with current federal dietary guidance (see Docket No. FDA–2015–P–4564 (citizen petition from KIND LLC)). In particular, the petitioners requested that FDA amend the regulation defining the nutrient content claim ‘‘healthy’’ with respect to total fat intake and amend the regulation 10869 to emphasize whole foods and dietary patterns rather than specific nutrients. III. How To Participate in the Public Meeting II. Purpose and Format of the Public Meeting Due to limited space and time, we encourage all persons who wish to attend the meeting to register in advance. There is no fee to register for the public meeting, and registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Early registration is recommended because seating is limited. Onsite registration will be accepted, if space permits, after all preregistered attendees are seated. Those requesting an opportunity to make an oral presentation during the time allotted for public comment at the meeting should submit a request in advance (see table 1 for details) and provide the specific topic or issue to be addressed. Due to the anticipated high level of interest in presenting public comment and the limited time available, we are allocating 3 minutes to each speaker to make an oral presentation. Speakers will be limited to making oral remarks; there will not be an opportunity to display materials such as slide shows, videos, or other media during the meeting. If time permits, individuals or organizations that did not register in advance may be granted the opportunity to make an oral presentation. We would like to maximize the number of individuals who make a presentation at the meeting and will do our best to accommodate all persons who wish to make a presentation or express their opinions at the meeting. We encourage persons and groups who have similar interests to consolidate their information for presentation by a single representative. After reviewing the presentation requests, we will notify each participant before the meeting of the approximate time their presentation is scheduled to begin, and remind them of the presentation format (i.e., 3-minute oral presentation without visual media). Table 1 of this document provides information on participation in the public meeting. We are holding the public meeting to give interested parties an opportunity to discuss the use of the term ‘‘healthy’’ in the labeling of human food. At the meeting, following introductory presentations, parties will have an opportunity to participate in their choice of breakout sessions on topics referenced in the notice and related documents and engage in an open comment and question and answer session. We invite interested parties to provide information, share experiences, and raise issues specifically related to the nutrient content claim ‘‘healthy,’’ including (but not limited to): ‘‘healthy’’ as a nutrient-based claim, food component-based claim, or both; ‘‘healthy’’ single definition or definition by category; consumer understanding of and responses to the term ‘‘healthy’’; and when, if ever, the use of the term ‘‘healthy’’ may be false or misleading. Interested parties may also submit electronic or written comments to the docket by April 26, 2017. The agenda and other documents will be accessible on our FDA public meetings Web site at http://www.fda.gov/Food/NewsEvents/ WorkshopsMeetingsConferences/ default.htm before the public meeting. In general, the meeting format will include introductory presentations, perspectives panels, and multiple opportunities for individuals to express their opinions at the meeting through oral presentations, participation in breakout sessions, and submission of electronic or written comments (see ADDRESSES for information on submitting comments). There will be an opportunity for parties who are unable to participate in person to join the meeting via Webcast. (See section III for more information on the Webcast option.)

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    In the Federal Register of September 28, 2016, we published a 
document inviting public comment on the possibility of redefining the 
``healthy'' nutrient content claim for food labeling (81 FR 66562). 
This action was

[[Page 10869]]

consistent with our recently released 2016-2025 Foods and Veterinary 
Medicine (FVM) Program's strategic plan with specific goals for 
nutrition and other planned and recent activity including the issuance 
of final rules updating certain of our nutrition labeling regulations. 
The document also contained several specific questions on which we 
sought input (81 FR 66562 at 66564 to 66565). In the Federal Register 
of December 30, 2016, we published a document extending the comment 
period for the docket to receive information and comments on the use of 
the term ``healthy'' in the labeling of human food (81 FR 96404); the 
comment period, which was originally scheduled to end on January 26, 
2017, was extended to April 26, 2017.
    We also recently announced the availability of a guidance for 
industry entitled ``Use of the Term `Healthy' in the Labeling of Human 
Food Products: Guidance to Industry'' (81 FR 66527). The guidance 
advises manufacturers who wish to use the implied nutrient content 
claim ``healthy'' to label their food products as provided by our 
regulations. More specifically, the guidance advises food manufacturers 
of FDA's intent to exercise enforcement discretion with respect to the 
implied nutrient content claim ``healthy'' on foods that have a fat 
profile of predominantly mono and polyunsaturated fats, but do not meet 
the regulatory definition of ``low fat,'' or that contain at least 10 
percent of the Daily Value (DV) per reference amount customarily 
consumed (RACC) of potassium or vitamin D.
    In addition, we received a citizen petition asking that we update, 
among other things, our nutrient content claim regulations to be 
consistent with current federal dietary guidance (see Docket No. FDA-
2015-P-4564 (citizen petition from KIND LLC)). In particular, the 
petitioners requested that FDA amend the regulation defining the 
nutrient content claim ``healthy'' with respect to total fat intake and 
amend the regulation to emphasize whole foods and dietary patterns 
rather than specific nutrients.

II. Purpose and Format of the Public Meeting

    We are holding the public meeting to give interested parties an 
opportunity to discuss the use of the term ``healthy'' in the labeling 
of human food. At the meeting, following introductory presentations, 
parties will have an opportunity to participate in their choice of 
breakout sessions on topics referenced in the notice and related 
documents and engage in an open comment and question and answer 
session. We invite interested parties to provide information, share 
experiences, and raise issues specifically related to the nutrient 
content claim ``healthy,'' including (but not limited to): ``healthy'' 
as a nutrient-based claim, food component-based claim, or both; 
``healthy'' single definition or definition by category; consumer 
understanding of and responses to the term ``healthy''; and when, if 
ever, the use of the term ``healthy'' may be false or misleading. 
Interested parties may also submit electronic or written comments to 
the docket by April 26, 2017. The agenda and other documents will be 
accessible on our FDA public meetings Web site at http://www.fda.gov/Food/NewsEvents/WorkshopsMeetingsConferences/default.htm before the 
public meeting.
    In general, the meeting format will include introductory 
presentations, perspectives panels, and multiple opportunities for 
individuals to express their opinions at the meeting through oral 
presentations, participation in breakout sessions, and submission of 
electronic or written comments (see ADDRESSES for information on 
submitting comments). There will be an opportunity for parties who are 
unable to participate in person to join the meeting via Webcast. (See 
section III for more information on the Webcast option.)

III. How To Participate in the Public Meeting

    Due to limited space and time, we encourage all persons who wish to 
attend the meeting to register in advance. There is no fee to register 
for the public meeting, and registration will be on a first-come, 
first-served basis. Early registration is recommended because seating 
is limited. Onsite registration will be accepted, if space permits, 
after all preregistered attendees are seated.
    Those requesting an opportunity to make an oral presentation during 
the time allotted for public comment at the meeting should submit a 
request in advance (see table 1 for details) and provide the specific 
topic or issue to be addressed. Due to the anticipated high level of 
interest in presenting public comment and the limited time available, 
we are allocating 3 minutes to each speaker to make an oral 
presentation. Speakers will be limited to making oral remarks; there 
will not be an opportunity to display materials such as slide shows, 
videos, or other media during the meeting. If time permits, individuals 
or organizations that did not register in advance may be granted the 
opportunity to make an oral presentation. We would like to maximize the 
number of individuals who make a presentation at the meeting and will 
do our best to accommodate all persons who wish to make a presentation 
or express their opinions at the meeting.
    We encourage persons and groups who have similar interests to 
consolidate their information for presentation by a single 
representative. After reviewing the presentation requests, we will 
notify each participant before the meeting of the approximate time 
their presentation is scheduled to begin, and remind them of the 
presentation format (i.e., 3-minute oral presentation without visual 
media).
    Table 1 of this document provides information on participation in 
the public meeting.
