Changes to the Nutrition Facts

What you need to know about the changes

According to the FDA, a lot of research has gone into the update on the nutrition facts on food labels. Things like “added sugars”, new vitamins will be added, while “calories from fat” will be removed as research shows that the type of fat is of more consequence than the amount of fat consumed.

In addition, more attention to detail will go into the information provided about serving sizes. For this reason, products that have multiple servings will now have two columns, one that includes total package nutrition, and one that includes only per serving. These label changes will go into effect mid year 2018 or 2019.

Many people are out of touch with their body’s internal needs, and would benefit from learning how to listen to its signals. Use the principles in the picture above to encourage intuitive feelings towards the body!
