I was so disappointed to read that manufacturers would be given 2 years to switch to the new labels.... assuming the changes are approved.
I'm with Becky on this one-- and I think she chose some very good examples. Raisin Bran. Bran sounds good. And nothing wrong with raisins. Those are generally just dried grapes, no sugar added. But looking at that nutrition label as it is now.... no way to tell how much sugar is the naturally occuring -ose in the raisins, and how much is added sugar that I don't want. So skip buying Raisin Bran, because I can't tell.
It's all fine and good for WHO or the USDA or whoever-all wants to, to give us a guideline on how much added sugar we shouldn't be eating. But at the same time, give us a way to figure it out already.
