This morning the FDA unveiled the new Nutrition Facts label. There are many important changes, updates that modernize the Nutrition Facts label with our current eating habits. One of the biggest changes, actively opposed by the food industry, is the addition of "added sugars" to the label. Also, the nutrients of concern have changed, with Vitamin D and Potassium now mandated to be on the label along with Calcium and Iron.
Some serving sizes will also be changing. Now packages that are clearly meant to be consumed in one sitting will need to be represented as one serving. For example, a 20 ounce soda bottle will now be represented as one serving, whereas before it often said 2.5 servings (and the serving size was 8 ounces).
Here is a great infographic to explain what is new:
