Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Westernjournal.com: “Biden Admin Announces Push to Mandate a Significant Change to Food Labels”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The Biden administration is calling for a new rule that would put nutrition information on the front of food labels in the name of equity and health.

The rule is among many proposals developed for consideration Wednesday at the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health, according to NBC News.

In its executive summary of the strategy, the White House calls for the Food and Drug Administration to “develop a front-of-package (FOP) labeling system to quickly and easily communicate nutrition information.”

“FOP labeling systems — such as star ratings or traffic light schemes — can promote equitable access to nutrition information and healthier choices and could also prompt industry to reformulate foods to be healthier,” the document said.

The strategy said the FDA “will conduct research and propose developing a standardized FOP labeling system for food packages to help consumers, particularly those with lower nutrition literacy, quickly and easily identify foods that are part of a healthy eating pattern.”
