Nutrition Facts 2.0


Improving the Next Generation of
Nutrition Facts Labels



On February 26, 2014, Experts from consumer groups, industry, and the designer of the original Nutrition Facts label discussed how the label might be revised to help Americans select healthier diets. The discussion was hosted by the Center for Science in the Public Interest, the nonprofit nutrition and food safety advocacy group that lobbied for passage of the law requiring Nutrition Facts on packaged foods.

The Food and Drug Administration recently published its own proposed revisions to Nutrition Facts labels. Required by the 1990 Nutrition Labeling and Education Act, the labels have only had one previous major change since their adoption—a line for trans fat added in 2006.
