New FDA Nutritional Facts Panel Explained

Adding to their already fantastic farmdocdaily blog, the department of agricultural and consumer economics at the University of Illinois has just launched a new policy blog.  

The most recent post is on proposed changes to the nutrition facts panel by Brenna Ellison, one of my former students at Oklahoma State.  In the link at the bottom her post (which jumps to a brief survey), Brenna created the best visual illustration I've seen to date of the proposed changes.  I've reproduced it here with Brenna's permission. 

I should also note that the results from our Food Demand Survey (FooDS) suggest most people prefer the new label to the old.
