Likely Details of New Nutrition Labels
Under the Obama administration's new nutriiton label proposals, serving size requirements will change for certain foods to reflect amounts people currently eat. Companies will be required to include the amount of added sugars in food products on labels. The number of calories will also be featured more prominently on labels. Administration officials say the plan to change labels would cost about $2 billion and reap benefits of $20 to 30 billion over the next few decades. Labels last underwent a significant update in 2003 when the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) required companies to display trans fat content.
