FDA Proposes Nutrition Label Update
Nutrition labels are poised for a makeover. The Food and Drug Administration is proposing some changes to the labels, which are found on packaged foods and drinks.
The new label design makes the total calorie count easier to spot and puts emphasis on added nutrients, such as sugar, Vitamin D and potassium.
The FDA also wants to alter serving sizes to reflect what people actually consume, such as labeling an entire bottle of soda as one serving.
The proposals mark the first update for nutrition labels in more than 20 years.
