New Nutrition Labels Help You Make Healthier Food Choices
The new labels required by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration highlight calorie content and the amount of added sugars in packaged goods.
Some of the most important information on food nutrition labels will be a little easier to find once companies start complying with new labeling rules approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The new labels won’t look all that different from the ones you’re used to seeing. But there are some important changes for consumers trying to make healthy choices. Among the additions to the labels are the amounts of added sugars and a clearer explanation of what the percent of daily value means for the nutrients contained in the product.
