SportMed InTraining: New Regulations on Food Labels

Week 12 New Food Labels in Canada.

From now on, reading food labels will be easier. Read my SportMedBC article that explains Canada's new regulations to nutrition labels. We can look forward to improvements in the list of ingredients, the Nutrition Facts table and serving sizes. Serving sizes have been standardized and reflect amounts that we actually eat. 

 

The changes have targeted sugar, making it easy to quickly find added sugars and to see how much sugar is in a food. Until now, manufacturers could mislead us by using small amounts of a few different types of sugar, so that each one is listed separately on the list of ingredients, which hides the fact that sugar is the first and predominant ingredient. Now all the types of sugars must be grouped together in the list of ingredients.  The example below shows how the new way of grouping sugars together makes it easy to quickly find the sugars and to see how much sugar is in a food, compared to other ingredients.
