What you should know - leading and current items.

Getting the Carbs, Protein and Fats Right!

 

BDAS, LLC staff have looked at the new rules for the FDA Nutritional Mandate - The required data expected to be fully in place by May 2017 - SEE UPDATE BELOW. However, some restaurants are demanding the data by January 1, 2017. Samples cannot be put through on a rush basis so we urge all clients using either our services or others to act promptly on this issue. We can be contacted for details. Or go directly to the catalog through the catalog button or picture link below.

12-13-16: We just learned that the FDA may allow brewers to rely on some database information, rather than complete testing of all parameters. BDAS, LLC staff have been asked to be involved in the testing for data to be contributed to that database. Stay tuned! This is still a long ways off and YOU NEED TO READ BELOW FOR GUIDANCE ON GETTING THIS DONE.

Major Update: THE DEADLINE FOR NUTRITIONAL COMPLIANCE HAS PASSED. BUT MAY 5th 2017 IS EXPECTED TO BE THE FINAL ENFORCEMENT DAY - LINKS ARE HERE TO EXPLAIN THE CONFUSION!

The Compliance deadline date for the originally initiated (2014) FDA Menu Labeling Regulation was to be December 1st, 2016. {See what is needed for beverage data in Figure to the left.} On December 2nd, 2016 the FDA announced that it will publish its final ruling with enforcement now set for May 5th, 2017. While this has all been very tiring to uncover the "rules" and confusing at best there are two links that now provide the best dialog on all facets of this nutritional issue. FDA One and FDA Two. BDAS, LLC has a detailed set of tests to cover all the needs here and we ask that you consult with us to get you the data you need to have in place now and most certainly before May 5th, 2017. 

Heading to 2017.

Brewers we hope to see you DC. Coming up fast!

Once again there with Eastern Kentucky University.
