    On Feb. 26, 2016, China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) released an announcement detailing the new requirements for health food naming. Health foods with a name indicative of physiological functions will be prohibited from being manufactured from May 1, 2016.

    In consideration of the popularity of certain brands that may currently violate this rule, a grace period has been given to manufacturers which will allow them to phase in their new brand name by using dual brand names including the original product name and the new name. The font size of the original name shall not be half larger than that of the new name. The original product name shall not be indicated after Jan. 1, 2017.
