the u.s. food and drug administration is proposing additional revisions to the nutrition
facts label for packaged foods. the supplemental proposal would, among other things,
require declaration of the percent daily value （dv） for added sugars. the proposed
rule is a supplement to the march 3, 2014 proposed rule on updating the nutrition facts label.
the percent daily value indicates how much a nutrient in a serving of food contributes to a daily
diet and would help consumers make informed choices for themselves and their families.
the percent daily value would be based on the recommendation that the daily intake of
calories from added sugars not exceed 10 percent of total calories.
