Watson Publishes Webinar on Changes to the Nutrition Facts Label

WEST HAVEN, Conn., Sept. 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Watson Inc. has published an on-demand webinar to assist customers in preparing for changes to the Nutrition Facts Label. The webinar is a condensed version of the comprehensive presentation that has been given at several industry events this year.



The Nutrition Facts Label was first introduced 20 years ago, to aid consumers in healthy food decisions. The last major changes were completed in 1994.

This webinar covers:

  • The 9 things you need to know about the new Nutrition Facts Label
  • The changes to the Daily Values for certain nutrients
