(CNN NEWSOURCE) – New guidelines for nutrition labels went into effect on Jan. 1.
The FDA now requires labels on packaged food to include up-to-date scientific information, including info about the link between chronic diseases and diet.
The rule change applies to manufacturers who sell more than $10 million a year in food products.
Those who sell less than that don’t have to comply until the first of next year.
Makes of some single-ingredient sugar products — like honey and maple syrup — will have more time to comply.
The FDA says the change will help consumers make healthier food choices.
