What foods do not require a nutrition facts label?

In the National Labeling and Education Act, certain foods are exempt from nutrition labeling. These include:
  • Ready-to-eat food that is not for immediate consumption but is prepared on site. For example, products from bakeries and delis or candy store items.
  • Foods that do not contain significant amounts of nutrients. For example, coffee, tea and some spices.
  • Foods produced by businesses that meet certain criteria (business size, annual sales) may be exempt from nutrition labeling unless they make a health claim or nutrient content claim.
