The new look will make it easier for consumers to make better informed food choices. Some of the many changes that are being enforced are:
- The type size for “Calories,” “servings per container,” and the “Serving size.” Plus Manufacturers will need to Bold the number of Calories and the “Serving size”
- Manufacturers must declare the actual amount, in addition to percent Daily Value (and what that means) of vitamin D, calcium, iron and potassium.
- The labels will have new Information about Nutrition Science
And all of this to be completed by July 26, 2018.
