August 2015: Nutrition Labels and Sugar

Posted on Tuesday, August 4th, 2015

Canada’s Food Labels are changing! Sugars will now show a % Daily Value (DV). The percentage reflects how much of your daily amount is in a serving of the food. When comparing sugar content 5% DV or less is a little, and 15% DV or more is a lot. It allows consumers to compare products and make wiser choices.
