The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA)‡ respectfully submits comments to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for consideration by the 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC).

Dietary guidance recommendations intended to inform policy development and public health interventions must be based on the totality of available scientific evidence. The attached comments address concerns with the current process being used, the need for a total dietary approach, the identification of future research needs, and low calorie sweeteners and weight management. We ask that these comments be considered in the deliberations of the DGAC as their work is being finalized.
