Nutrition Facts labels underwent a makeover in 2016, which improved design and content. The FDA updated the Nutrition Facts label on packaged foods and drinks to reflect advances in nutritional science, consumer use and understanding, and shifts in American dietary choices and eating patterns. As a result, the modernized Nutrition Facts label helps consumers easily locate the specific nutrient information that drives better-informed food choices.

  • The type of information required to substantiate particular Nutrition Facts label declarations
