In another move toward making nutrition information readily accessible to consumers, the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) and the Food Marketing Institute (FMI) have announced the relaunch, if you will, of the Facts Up Front (formerlly known as "Nutrition Keys") labeling system.
The new nutrition icons are part of a voluntary program designed to clearly showcase calories, saturated fat, sodium, and sugar per serving. Read more about these changes here.
Clearly these changes, in addition to the proposed changes to the FDA's Nutrition Facts Panel, are a sign of the times: America is moving toward a more educated consumer audience.
