"(C) Subparagraph (2)(A) does not apply to a claim described in subparagraph (1)(A) and contained in the label or labeling of a food if such claim is contained in the brand name of such food and such brand name was in use on such food before October 25, 1989, unless the brand name contains a term defined by the Secretary under subparagraph (2)(A)(i). Such a claim is subject to paragraph (a). "(D) Subparagraph (2) does not apply to a claim described in subparagraph (1)(A) which uses the term 'diet' and is contained in the label or labeling of a soft drink if (i) such claim is contained in the brand name of such soft drink, (ii) such brand name was in use on such soft drink before October 25, 1989, and (iii) the use of the term 'diet' was in conformity with section 105.66 of title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations.

"(B)(i) The Secretary shall promulgate regulations authorizing Regulations, claims of the type described in subparagraph (I)(B) only if the Secretary determines, based on the totality of publicly available scientific evidence (including evidence from well-designed studies conducted in a manner which is consistent with generally recognized scientific procedures and principles), that there is significant scientific agreement, among experts qualified by scientific training and experience to evaluate such claims, that the claim is supported by such evidence. "(ii) A regulation described in subclause (i) shall describe— "(I) the relationship between a nutrient of the type required in the label or labeling of food by paragraph (q)(1) or (q)(2) and a disease or health-related condition, and "(II) the significance of each such nutrient in affecting such disease or health-related condition.
