PepsiCo to Add Heart Health Label to Some Frito-Lay Products


Vegetable oils, salad dressings, crackers and other oil-containing foods made by PepsiCo's Frito-Lay unit will now carry claims that products with unsaturated fat can curb heart disease risk, U.S. regulators said on Friday.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, in a statement, said the company notified the agency in January about its intent to add the claim to some of its products. It added any food that meets the agency's requirements could also carry the claim.
