FDA’s New Nutrition Labels are Coming
Anyone who has been on a strict diet can attest to how nutrition fact labels on packaged foods and drinks are problematic. The serving sizes are often unrealistic, the carbohydrates and fats are not broken down clearly and there is a bunch of useless information about obscure vitamins that nobody needs to know. All of the above is going to change. The
FDA released new labeling requirements last Friday. Vendors have until July 2018 to comply.
new FDA labeling policy on packaged foods has really pissed off The Sugar Association. They made this statement:
“The extraordinary contradictions and irregularities, as well as the lack of scientific justification in this rulemaking process are unprecedented for the FDA”
One of the core tenants of biohacking is dietary related. Having more relevant information on the nutrition facts labels should make product comparison decisions significantly easier.
