New Nutrition Labels on the Way
By Kelly Young
The FDA is preparing to revise the nutrition labels on packaged food, the first major change in 20 years, the Associated Press reports. The new labels are expected to feature prominent calorie listings.
Nutrition advocates have pushed for delineating added sugars and syrups, clarifying serving sizes, moving away from metric measurements, and adding the percentage of whole wheat.
The FDA has passed along guidelines for the labels to the White House, but it is not clear which changes will be made nor when the new labels will be released.
