FDA Says Nestlé Made Unauthorized Nutrient Claims For Certain Beverages

December 22, 2009: 09:58 AM EST
Swiss food company Nestlé made unauthorized nutrient claims about several of its juice brands, the U.S. FDA said in recent letters to the company. The agency said Nestlé’s Juicy Juice Brain Development Beverage (Apple), for example, used the term “no sugar added,” a claim not permitted on foods targeted at kids under the age of two. Other drinks cited in a letter were Juicy Juice All-Natural 100% Juice Orange Tangerine and Juicy Juice All-Natural 100% Juice Grape. Another FDA letter to the company said the Boost Kid Essentials Nutritionally Complete Drink was improperly advertised as a "medical food."
