Poll Finds “Added Sugars” Label Confuses People

There is a debate over the FDA’s new Nutrition Facts label design, which requires "sugars" and "added sugars" to be listed separately. A Kellogg online survey showed that 22% of consumers incorrectly identified the amount of sugar in a product because they were adding the two sugar numbers together. The Grocery Manufacturers Association said most of its members oppose the new design requirement, believing it implies that added sugars are unhealthy, while other members think the method will help shoppers make more informed choices.
