Federal and State Law Regulate Disclosures on Protein Supplements
The Federal Food and Drug Administration regulates the serving size and nutritional disclosures on the labels of products, including nutritional protein supplements like Body Fortress. Specifically, the FDA prohibits making unsubstantiated claims and requires claims to be consistent so that these products can be compared “apples to apples.” Furthermore, state laws prohibit selling products with false claims about how healthy or great they are for you.
Recently, however, a private investigation has uncovered that several Protein Shake Supplements have been violating state and federal law. They have been manipulating their ingredients and nutritional labels. Body Fortress is under investigation for being one of those brands.
