Changes Are Being Made To Nutrition Fact Labels
Something is getting a makeover!
Yep! Nutrition Facts labels are undergoing a few modifications to better appease today's society according to the FDA. “These changes can help you make better-informed choices about the foods you and your family eat and help you maintain a healthy diet,” the FDA claims.
There are now six differences (also explained in the video below) serving size is now based on today's calorie count, calories/servings per container/serving size are bold and larger, added sugars are now included, nutrients includes vitamin D and potassium, vitamins A and C are no longer required and lastly the footnote describes the % daily value in context of a 2,000 calorie a day diet.
