Maine Public Radio: Maple Syrup, Honey Labels To Be Spared ‘Added Sugar’ Label

PORTLAND, Maine – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says new guidance about added sugars that exempts pure maple syrup and honey products will be released early next year.

The agency announced months ago that it was considering requiring pure maple syrup and honey to be labeled as containing “added sugars.” Members of the industries that produce those products protested the labels, saying they would be misleading and unfair.

FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said Thursday that the new rules will provide “a path forward for pure, single-ingredient” maple syrup and honey products that does not involve an “added sugars” declaration along with the nutritional facts.

He says the solution addresses “producer concerns that their products could be perceived as being economically adulterated.”
