This new approach, presents opportunities for product development and personalizing nutrition based on the unique nutrition needs during various life stages. Public Law 101-445 (October 22, 1990) established the National Nutrition Monitoring Advisory Council and the reporting of Dietary Guidelines for Americans. At least every five years, the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee (DGAC) members are charged to develop guidelines for the general public and national nutrition policy, which shall be based on the preponderance of the scientific and medical knowledge, current at the time the report is prepared. Historically, the topics and questions to be addressed by the DGAC were generated from public suggestions and guidance from either the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or USDA. As we approach the 9th edition of the DGA, unlike previous years, the topics and scientific questions were posted on the USDA website for public comment and finalized by USDA and the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).
