Confused About the Nutrition Facts Label? You Are Not Alone.

Do you pay attention, let alone understand the Daily Value information in the Nutrition Facts panel on the foods you buy at the grocery store? If you don’t you are not alone! The International Food Information Council, an industry association, has recently provided the US Food and Drug Association with the results of its research which has found that most consumers are confused about this information, and therefore do not even pay attention to the information provided in making healthful food choices.

PositiveTip: Correctly understanding the Nutrition Facts panel and Daily Value figures can be a very useful tool in helping you make better dietary choices.
