The infographic displays the timeline pertaining to the regulation created by the Food and Drug Administration to keep food manufacturers accountable for what is labeled on the food they produce. The evolution of nutrition labeling was not solely driven on the decisions made by the government, but also the interests of consumers. The process began in 1969 and has been evolving until present day. As scientists began to uncover the link between diet and food, consumers began to take note. The publishing of both The Surgeon General’s Report on Nutrition and Health and the National Research Council’s report and the Diet and Health: Implications for Reducing Chronic Disease Risk in the late 1980’s are what sparked the public’s interest in how food was effecting their health. The connection between nutrition education and the spending habits of consumers changed the course of food labeling. Health claims began to emerge, and regulations were put in place by the Food and Drug Administration to ensure that all claims on food labels were substantiated and truthful. New discoveries on the health effects of fat and calories began to circulate the market along with the discovery of food allergies.

Dietary supplements are meant to aid in providing additional vitamins, minerals, fiber, amino acids, herbs and botanicals to ones’ diet that may be deficient. These supplements are available in various forms and advertise to promote various health claims. However, often there is little research to support these health claims. Supplement use date back as far as 1920 when cod liver oil was introduced as a food nutrient. The first known multivitamin/multimineral /Phytonutrient supplement called Nutrilite was introduced in the United States in 1934.1 With the growth of dietary supplement manufacturing the possibility of misbranding, and false product claims required standardized regulations. These regulations became necessary to protect the public from undue harm. In 1938 the Federal Food Drug and Cosmetic Act (FDCA) was introduced. 2 Over time the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) became involved to regulate labeling, good manufacturing policies, and ingredients all intended to protect the public from harm and false health claims.
