Food Labelling: Health Claims; Dietary Saturated Fat and Cholesterol and Risk of Coronary Heart Disease (7 pages, in English)

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA or we) is amending the regulation authorizing a health claim on the relationship between dietary saturated fat and cholesterol and risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) to permit raw fruits and vegetables that fail to comply with the "low fat" definition and/or the minimum nutrient content requirement to be eligible to bear the claim. We are taking this action in response to a petition submitted by the American Heart Association (the petitioner) . The amendment expands the use of this health claim to certain fruits and vegetables that are currently ineligible for the health claim.
