This presentation will focus on the Nutrition Facts label, which was revised to reflect updated scientific information, including the link between diet and chronic diseases such as obesity and heart disease. Label changes include a larger font for calories, new serving size requirements, an added sugars declaration, revised Percent Daily Values, and an updated list of required vitamins and minerals, among others. During this presentation, nutrition researchers and practitioners will go "behind the label" with FDA education and outreach staff and an FDA nutrition policy expert and learn about the changes to the Nutrition Facts label and proposed consumer education efforts.
