Q. I have a client who wants to add boron as a nutrient listed on the Nutrition Facts panel. I cannot find regulations about this.
A. The regulations regarding U.S. Nutrition Facts panels allow only the listing of mandatory and voluntary nutrients. Boron is neither, so it cannot be listed on the Nutrition Facts panel. The Supplement Facts labels do allow the listing of other nutrients and substances, so Boron could be listed on a Supplement Facts label if the product qualifies to be labeled as a Supplement.
