Abstract

This Paper chronicles the interesting history behind fruit and vegetable juice regulation in the United States. Part I discusses the use of tariffs and standards of identity to regulate juice from the early 1900s until the 1970s. Part II traces the history of labeling regulations for both 100 percent juices and diluted juice beverages — focusing on the 1974 diluted-juice proposal that was stalled for nearly fifteen years. Part III briefly describes the current label-focused approach adopted by the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Part IV concludes.
