Nutrition Labeling

Nutrition Labeling

The mandatory or voluntary declaration of the nutritional value of a foodstuff. For instance, sellers of microwave dinners may be required to display how much fat, sodium, carbohydrates and so forth are contained in the meal. Critics may contend that nutrition labeling may add to costs for some food sellers but proponents argue that the right to know what one is eating outweighs this fact.
