Last Updated: May 30, 2012Topic: Dietary Guidelines
Overview: The dietary guidelines, updated every five years, are a set of general nutritional advice designed for American consumers. The guidelines often set the stage for future food policies.
NCA supports dietary guidelines that offer realistic advice to Americans and that accommodate all foods including occasional treats in moderation. For instance, the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee has determined that moderate consumption of dark chocolate and cocoa is positively associated with cardiovascular benefits.
