I don’t think we have a thread for this yet. Nothing earth-shattering, but the new label does look better to me:
A couple articles about it:
I wonder, in a product like Soylent, are all the sugars considered “added sugars”? I would assume so, but I’ve only just glanced at the new label, so I haven’t read all the new changes in-depth yet. I’m also pleased to see that potassium is now required on the label; that omission made no sense to me.
I also had to pull out this super-high-quality comment from the WaPo article on added sugars:
It is not a ‘win’ in the slightest. It is a loss for those who do not give a damned about ‘additional sugar’ in things like myself.
Why do I not give a damned? Because I know that we have been eating these massive amounts of sugar for YEARS and it was only RECENTLY that obesity started being a problem.
At about the same exact time we did a little something called adding sugar SUBSTITUTES to our diets.
Some of which have been proven to cause weight gain and diabetes in mice.
The best part: Why do I not give a damned?
