Q.

If my product contains 1,500 mg of an ingredient per serving. Should I declare it as 1,500 mg or 1.5 g?

A.

The quantitative amount of other dietary ingredients (ones that FDA has not established Daily Values for) must be expressed in appropriate units of measure – 1,000 or more units must be declared in the next higher set of units. For instance, 1,500 mg must be declared as 1.5 g. However, this does not apply to dietary ingredients with established Daily Values, as those also have established units of measure that must be used.
