Get Your Facts Upfront

Another system of food labeling is catching the eye of busy shoppers.

Facts upfront labels!

From sodium to calories, the nutritional facts panel has been brought up front so you can spot it at a glance. But these quick and easy-to-see ingredient icons aren’t a mandatory requirement for manufacturers.

The FDA is still monitoring the recent changes. Proponents for the front labels agree that these labels make it easier for consumers to see just how healthy their options are. This is different than smart labels that were released last December, offering even more details on facts such as where foods are grown.
