Nutrition label updated by FDA

FDLI SmartBrief | May 23, 2016

The FDA has approved major revisions to the nutrition-facts panel on the backs of packaged food and beverages, which will now emphasize calories and serving sizes and include added sugars. Most food manufacturers must comply with the new rules by July 2018. Those with annual food sales of less than $10 million will be given another year to meet the requirements.
