The FDA is updating its SOI program with the goal of maintaining the basic nature and essential characteristics of standardized foods while permitting flexibility with respect to their composition.
The FDA’s work to update SOIs falls into three categories:
- Establishing principles to more transparently communicate what the agency will consider when determining whether to revise, eliminate, or establish a food standard;
- Updating individual SOIs to allow for continued innovation in the marketplace, including updating SOIs to reflect modern technologies and processing methods; and
- Updating SOIs to ensure they are supporting the production and innovation of healthier food.
