New Nutrition Labels

February 27, 2014, 5:19 PM by Casey Wonnenberg

New Nutrition Labels

Reading nutrition labels can be complicated, especially if you're a beginner. That's why the FDA has unveiled these changes. They hope to streamline the information and help consumers make healthier choices.

"This isn't a radical idea, in fact it's been pretty obvious.  But the truth is too often it's nearly impossible to get the most basic facts about the food we buy for our families,” Michelle Obama said.

The new label would list the total amount of calories would be in bold. It would also include the total amount of sugars. Vitamins A and C will no longer be listed, and Vitamin D and potassium have been added.
Serving information is also more prominent and realistic.

Items such as a 20-ounce soda will become one serving to reflect how much Americans actually consume.

The second proposal would divide the information into three categories: quick facts, avoid too much, and get enough.

If approved, it could be another two years before you start seeing the new labels on your grocery store shelves.
