FDA Survey ("Natural" on Food Labeling): Deadline May 10, 2016

The FDA is soliciting public comments on the FDA's definition of "natural" used in foods.  For the corn-allergic community, "natural" = "corn additives."  The FDA has extended their deadline (May 10); therefore, if you haven't posted your comment yet, now is the time to submit your comments.

Addressing HFCS (high fructose corn syrup):
"The FDA also notes that some federal courts, as a result of litigation between private parties, have requested administrative determinations about whether food products containing ingredients produced using genetic engineering or foods containing high fructose corn syrup may be labeled natural."
