Not sure what our nutrition labels mean? Here's a guide to a typical nutrition facts label. Some information is subject to change based on the type of product.
Please note: Due to Nutrition Facts label changes from the FDA, the labels will appear different from what you may be used to seeing. This change will be implemented on all Nutrition Facts labels by 2018. These changes include larger/bolder font, added sugar amount and updated daily values and nutrient amounts.
