The FDA Gives Nutrition Labels a Makeover

The familiar nutrition label which appears on packaged foods has existed for more than 20 years. Now, the label is getting a makeover: A new “Added Sugars” line shows hidden sugars. The “Calories from fat” line has been dropped, and serving sizes have been adjusted to match what people typically eat (as opposed to what they should ideally consume). Take a look at the biggest adjustments to the label in the infographic above, courtesy of Sharecare.com. The new version of the label will show up in a grocery store near you in July 2018.
