Packaged food products in the United States are beginning to display the new "Nutrition Facts" label
(comparison below). Companies have until July 26th, 2018 to display the new label.
More information, from the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA): https://www.fda.gov/Food/GuidanceReg.../ucm385663.htm
It's been 20 years since the Nutrition Facts label was revised.
The new label strongly emphasizes Calorie content.
The new label now requires information on Added Sugars
The new label requires information on vitamin D and potassium
, and doesn't require information on vitamins A or C.
The new label also reflects the new recommendations for (1) slightly higher minimum fiber intake, (2) slightly higher fat intake, and (3) very slightly lower carbohydrate intake.
The FDA continues to support the American Heart Association's recommendations to minimize saturated fat and cholesterol intakes
Commentary: I don't know how much of the public believes the FDA's nutrition recommendations. The FDA's recommendations seem to align pretty well with peer-reviewed nutrition studies, but people still prefer to believe bad-nutrition-purveyors like David Permutter (who encourages people to liberally consume beef, butter, and tallow) and Joe Mercola (whose website contains dozens of anti-vegetarian articles).
