Sugars, syrups and spoons, oh my! FDA wants changes at grocery stores

Food labels nutrition facts

WASHINGTON – The nutrition facts label on most food products could soon be getting a new look.

The Food and Drug Administration has now sent guidelines for new food labels to the White House.

One of the proposed changes is making the number of calories more prominent.

Other potential changes include using more “teaspoon” measurements instead of grams and including a line for added sugars and syrups.

According to the FDA, the nutrition facts food label hasn’t changed in two decades.
