Bravo! FDA Proposes Requiring Percent DV of Added Sugars

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has proposed the Nutrition Facts label require a declaration of the percent daily value (%DV) for added sugars. This would give consumers more information for added sugars that is similar to the information they have seen for years about other nutrients. It would require indicating how much sugar in a serving of food contributes to the daily diet, thus helping consumers make better choices.

PositiveTip: Avoid eating more than 10% of your calories from added sugars.
