Firstly, as Echon says, it wasn’t my intention to promote my product, and having made no reference to it in my post (combined with selling a product type Rosa Labs have said they won’t sell, exclusively in a geographical location they don’t sell to) I don’t feel like I did. Additionally, I was only pointing out the hypothetical situation where they don’t change their recipe to meet the new requirements. However, I will respond to your post in parts.
Whilst the regulations received updates in 1995 and 2003 as you say, these have mainly been additions of nutrients we learn more about, and not changes to the recommendations for micronutrient intake that were established in 1968. I am only concerned with the micronutrient intake, so perhaps I should have used the term RDIs instead - I have no issue with the macros.
When I refer to the new nutrition facts label, I am not referring to the slight change in the way information is shown (such as with added sugars), I am referring to the use of the new recommended intakes which were released in July, and which the FDA have given large companies until July 2018 and small companies until July 2019 to use. Indeed, my question would be whey if they were willing to change the label so quickly despite having so much time, why this wasn’t also accompanied by a change in formula. We will see with the release of their next iteration whether this is just a stock issue (as I suspect) or if they are giving themselves more time.
The FDA has released the new Daily Values, (you can see them underneath the DRIs here https://www.consumerlab.com/RDAs/ if you don’t already know them). The public would not be confused by a change because, frankly, a typical member of the public is just going to ensure they’re reaching 100% of whatever the recommendations on the label are - most people are not going to be looking at the actual quantities of each nutrient in their product of choice, and as such, switching to the new standard (which the FDA has set and said all companies operating on Rosa Labs scale must switch to by July 2018 but can switch to any time before then) would not confuse anyone.
I did not mean to imply they wouldn’t change their formulation for years. Truthfully I think they will with the release of either 1.7 or 2.1. And as I mentioned at the start of this post, I didn’t mean to advertise my own product (for the various reasons stated above and because I actually enjoy having debates like this on nutrition, so did so more out of enjoyment), so I apologise if my post came across like that. Thank you for the food wishes and sorry again if I misrepresented my message in a negative way.
