The Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) were developed jointly by the United States Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The DGA recommends dietary patterns and quantitative intake for macro- and micronutrients to the US population. The last DGA is based on the 2010 IOM data; the label changes are based off that report. The DGA also released an interim report in 2015, from which FDA took information about added sugars for use in planning the label changes. The next full DGA is scheduled to come out in 2020.
