Alcohol Beverage Labeling: Statements Related to Calorie and Nutrient Content, Serving Facts, Alcohol Facts, and Sugar Content

TTB regulations do not require nutrient content labeling for alcohol beverages. TTB allows truthful, accurate and specific calorie or carbohydrate statements on labels, but considers such statements to be misleading unless they include a statement that lists the number of calories and the number of grams of carbohydrates, protein, and fat contained in the product based on a single serving. TTB guidance documents provide two different formats for such statements: a “statement of average analysis” and a “Serving Facts statement.” Please note that the serving size may differ depending on the format used for your statement.   

TTB has also provided guidance about “Alcohol Facts” statements, which convey per-serving alcohol content information without nutrient content statements. 

See the links set forth below for the relevant TTB guidance on how industry members may include labeling statements relating to calorie, carbohydrate, protein, and fat content (including statements of average analysis and Serving Facts statements), as well as sugar content statements and Alcohol Facts statements.
