FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 20 YEARS.
THE NUTRITION LABELS ON THE FOOD YOU BUY COULD GET
A BIG MAKEOVER.
TONIGHT, KXLY4 IS WORKING FOR YOU WITH HOW THIS COULD
CHANGE THE WAY YOU SHOP!
OUR KYLEE CRUZ IS LIVE INSIDE BARGAIN GIANT FOODS
TONIGHT WITH WHAT WE COULD SEE ON THESE NEW LABELS.
I THINK ALL OF US HAVE WALKED THROUGH THE GROCERY
PICKED UP SOMETHING, TRIED TO READ THE LABEL AND BEEN
THE PRINT IS VERY SMALL, THE INFORMATION NOT CUT AND
NOW THE F-D-A WANTS TO MAKE SHOPPING EASIER BY CHANGING
IT MIGHT MAKE YOU THINK TWICE ABOUT WHAT GOES IN YOUR
DIGESTING INFORMATION ON NUTRITION LABELS CAN BE A
HARD TO SHALLOW!
they can be misleading
BUT FOR THE FIRST TIME IN TWO DECADES, A MAJOR MAKEOVER!
THIS IS WHAT WE SEE ON OUR FOOD NOW - IN THE FUTURE,
WE COULD SEE THIS!
THE NEW LABELS MAKE CALORIE COUNT BIGGER AND HIGHLIGHT
so it would spell out how much sugar was added to
this versus what was naturally in the milk
DIETITIAN NATALIE TAUZIN WITH THE HEALTH DISTRICT
- WALKED US THROUGH BARGAIN GIANT FOODS, POINTING
OUT HOW THE NEW LABELS HELP CONSUMERS DECIDE WHAT
TO GRAB OFF THE SHELVES.
so it's 38 grams of sugar in this but there is nothing
that would be a naturally sugar in this that is inherently
in water so it's all added sugar
ASIDE FROM THE LARGER CALORIE COUNT PRINT AND ADDED
THE NEW LABELS WILL TRY TO REFLECT WHAT WE ACTUALLY
EAT, NOT WHAT'S IDEAL OR RECOMMENDED.
typically when you have something like this you don't
just drink the serving size
YOU DRINK THE WHOLE BOTTLE - BUT NOW, THE CALORIE
INTAKE WILL BE MORE CLEAR.
if this is the package and people typically drink
the whole package, it would triple the calories
INSTEAD OF CRUNCHING NUMBERS AND TRYING TO FIGURE
OUT HOW MANY CALORIES ARE IN AN ITEM, IT WOULD BE
RIGHT THERE, IN BOLD.
i think i would follow my diet rules a lot more if
i could come in and grab a label and actually see
right in front of me what's actually in it and the
calorie take and sugar take
IF YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT.
THEN THE FDA WANTS YOU TO KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE
PUTTING IN YOUR MOUTH.
ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF A SERVING SIZE THAT WOULD CHANGE.
RIGHT NOW THE SERVING SIZE FOR ICE CREAM IS A HALF
BUT MOST OF US EAT MUCH MORE VANILLA OR CHOCOLATE
SO, THE SERVING SIZE FOR ICE CREAM WOULD JUMP TO A
AND THAT MEANS THE CALORIES ON THE LABEL WOULD DOUBLE,
A THREE-MONTH COMMENT PERIOD.
AFTER THAT, THE FDA WILL MAKE A FINAL RULE.
SO, YOU COULD SEE THE NEW LABELS ON SOME ITEMS LATER
YEAR AND MANDATORY WITHIN TWO YEARS.
