FDA Approved Revamp of Nutrition Labels

FDA Approved Revamp of Nutrition Labels - Health Council

“First lady Michelle Obama made the announcement about the FDA-approved revamp of the labels today. The new labels should make it easier for you to see how many calories you are eating, with a bolder font. Manufacturers will also have to list how much added sugar is in the food you are buying.”

“Nutrients will also get a makeover. The new labels will prioritize what Americans need more of, such as potassium and Vitamin D. Studies show that Americans don’t get enough of either in their diets. Products will also have to say how much calcium and iron are inside, but Vitamins C and A are out. That’s because deficiencies in those vitamins are now rare, according to the Food and Drug Administration.”
