HHS/FDA RIN: 0910-AF23 Publication ID: 2012 
Title: Food Labeling: Serving Sizes of Foods That Can Reasonably Be Consumed in One Eating Occasion; Dual Column Labeling; and Modifying the Reference Amounts Customarily Consumed 
Abstract: FDA is proposing to amend its labeling regulations for foods to provide updated Reference Amounts Customarily Consumed (RACCs) for certain food categories. If finalized, this rule would provide consumers with nutrition information based on the amount of food that is customarily consumed, which would assist consumers in maintaining healthy dietary practices. In addition to updating certain RACCs, FDA is also considering amending the definition of single-serving containers and providing for dual-column labeling, which would provide nutrition information per serving and per container, for certain containers.
