nutrition fact label

August 2019 Nutrition Newsletter

The recent updates to the nutrition facts label show off a new, cleaner design that’s meant to make it easier to quickly identify useful information. The updates also reflect the most recent scientific research on the links between food choices and chronic disease so that you can make healthy, great-tasting choices for you and your family.

Here are a few highlights of those changes…

  • Serving sizes have been updated to reflect the amount we actually eat.
  • A new line for “Added Sugars” is an important change, because now
  • consumers can clearly identify the amount of added sugars in foods.
  • The list of vitamins and minerals on food labels has been updated to
  • reflect changes in American’s food choices and eating patterns.
