retail news in context, analysis with attitude

NuVal, the nutritional scoring system, announced yesterday that its program has been endorsed by the American College of Preventive Medicine (ACPM).

"ACPM supports evidence-based and meaningful nutrition labeling that can guide consumers to healthier eating,” said ACPM President Mark B. Johnson, MD, in a prepared statement. “ACPM has reviewed the NuVal nutritional rating system and found that it meets the ACPM criteria for support."

The NuVal system gives all foods a score from 1 to 100; the higher the score, the higher the food’s overall nutrition. All NuVal scores are provided on the supermarket shelf, with a goal of making it easier for consumers to compare the overall nutrition of the foods they buy at a glance.
