The proposed changes would also note how much added sugar is in a product. In addition, the amount of Vitamin D and Potassium would have to be listed.
Overall, the changes are making strides towards helping Americans become more healthful. The fact remains that it is still in the people's power to make healthful choices. One criticism has been that these food labels will not impact the information people have when making choices at restaurants. Choosing a healthful meal can be more challenging at a restaurant because we don’t have a full breakdown of nutritional information. WooFood simplifies that process for the consumer by working behind the scenes with chefs to create and certify healthful menu choices and portion sizes.
