shanti2000-ga, The FDA requires that any food labeled "sugar free" must state that it is not for weight control, unless it meets additional calorie requirements. The following quote is from the International Food Information Council website. "Unless the food meets other requirements for low or reduced calorie products, "sugar-free," "no added sugar" or similarly labeled foods must feature another statement. The label must also state the product is not a reduced or low calorie food, or it is not for weight control." For more information, or to read the information from which the above quote was taken, visit the International Food Information Council page on this topic.
