Urban beekeeping in New Mexico's largest city.
The FDA is still moving forward with its requirement that honey and maple syrup be labelled as having added sugar. The current version of the new rule would allow an asterisk so we can state somewhere else on the bottle that we didn't actually add anything at all.
There is ONE DAY of public comment still - comments must be received by 11:59PM June 15th.
Please leave a public comment for the FDA, opposing the label requirement and saying we should be allowed to label our honey as "added sugars....zero"
Having to state that our sugar content is made up of added sugars will confuse consumers.
