New FDA Guidance Says “Evaporated Cane Juice” Is False and Misleading

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued updated industry guidance on the use of the term “evaporated cane juice.”  The FDA concludes that “evaporated can juice” is simply “sugar,” and that the term wrongly suggests that the product is made from or contains fruit or vegetable juice.  Accordingly, the FDA says in its guidance that it considers use of “evaporated cane juice” to be false and misleading under section 403(a)(1) of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.
