Nutrition labels are one of the most important things that we should look at when buying food. The nutrition label is what tells us how much of each vitamin and nutrient the food has and also what the food is made of. In today’s article is a list of eight things that they are changing on food labels. The first change is the addition of added sugars in the nutrition facts. Added sugars will account for any sugar that does not occur naturally in the food.
This will help differentiate between the natural occurring sugars and the added sugars which are much worse for you. Another change they are making is changes in the serving size. The serving size will now be based on how much the average person eats. This will help stop the misconception of the nutrition facts that many people have because they are not looking at the serving size. One other change is the addition of potassium and vitamin D in the foods. Both these nutrients are very important for one’s health.
