When you check the nutrition facts, do you consider the serving size? The FDA has decided that food manufacturers must update the nutrition facts label to accurately reflect the serving size that people actually eat. For instance, one example given is the 1/2 cup suggested serving size given for most ice cream. The FDA posits that this is unrealistic. Most Americans, they say, are more likely to eat a full cup.
This sounds like a great update to an outdated labeling system. Now if we can just get them to add what pesticides can be found in the food on the nutrition label?
