New FDA Food Label Guidelines

As of May 2016, the FDA has changed their food label guidelines to reflect a more current view of what we need in our diets.


Here’s what’s new: 

1.) “Servings”/”Calories”–larger, bolder type.

2.) “Added Sugars” value now listed.

3.) Change in nutrients listed (Vitamin D, K).

4.) Actual amounts of nutrients listed.

5.) New footnote.

6.) Daily values have been updated.

7.) Serving sizes updated to “realistic” amounts consumed. (i.e., one bottle of 16 oz. soda is listed as ONE serving, not two).
