Let’s face it, food labels can be really confusing. Consumers often have difficulty deciphering which parts are important and how to apply the information to their overall diets. You have probably seen some products sporting the new nutrition facts panel which has been slowly rolling out as companies change over their packaging to feature the updated version of the food label. The FDA is requiring several changes to better reflect the way people really eat and help us make informed food choices that support a healthy diet. The updated label sports a new visual design and reflects current scientific information, including the link between diet and chronic diseases.
How is the new label different?
You will notice the calories are more visually prominent and bolded. The percentages of calories and nutrients you will find on the label are based on a 2000 calorie diet. If you require more or less, you’ll need to adjust them yourself.
