The FDA recently announced a temporary easing of food labeling guidelines, which enables packaged food manufacturers to replace certain ingredients without alteration of labels, with a view to avoiding potential disturbance of the food supply chain in the throes of a Covid-19 pandemic
This same guideline intended to address problems that might arise if manufacturers had trouble obtaining ingredients and only relatively small amounts of ingredients found in foods.
