The FDA’s Nutrition Facts labels got an update. Going forward, the new Nutrition Facts label will need to list total fat, trans fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, total carbohydrate, dietary fiber, total sugars, added sugars, protein, and certain vitamins and minerals. Bob talks about what this means for us as he references the article from Costco Connection, Label-mates.
