WASHINGTON， May 20 (Xinhua) -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Friday announced a major update to th Nutrition Facts label on packaged foods in an effort to help American consumers make healthy food choices.
The new label included a new design to highlight calories and servings， as well as new serving sizes that more closely reflect the amounts of food that Americans currently eat， which the FDA said have changed since the last serving size requirements were published in 1993.
The update also included grams and a percent daily value for added sugars to be declared to help consumers know how much sugar has been added to the product.
"It is difficult to meet nutrient needs while staying within calorie limits if you consume more than 10 percent of your total daily calories from added sugars，" the FDA wrote in a statement.
Since 2，000 calories a day is used for general nutrition advice， the 10 percent requirement means people should get no more than 200 calories from added sugar a day.
The revisions also required dual column labels to indicate both "per serving" and "per package" calorie and nutrition information for certain multi-serving food products that could be consumed in one sitting or multiple sittings.
"With dual-column labels available， people will be able to easily understand how many calories and nutrients they are getting if they eat or drink the entire packageunit at one time，" the U.S. regulator said.
Other changes included a requirement for products between one and two servings， such as a 20-ounce soda， to be labeled as one serving since it's typically consumed in one sitting， updated daily values for nutrients like sodium， dietary fiber and vitamin D， and a declaration of Vitamin D and potassium that will include the actual gram amount， in addition to the percent daily value.
Vitamins A and C will no longer be required because deficiencies of these vitamins are rare， but these nutrients can be included on a voluntary basis.
In addition， "Calories from Fat" will be removed because research shows the type of fat is more important than the amount， but "Total Fat，" "Saturated Fat，" and "Trans Fat" will continue to be required.
"I am thrilled that the FDA has finalized a new and improved Nutrition Facts label that will be on food products nationwide，" U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama， who has actively pushed the Let's Move! initiative to fight childhood obesity， said in a statement.
"This is going to make a real difference in providing families across the country the information they need to make healthy choices."
Most food manufacturers will be required to use the new label by July 26， 2018 while those with less than 10 million U.S. dollars in annual food sales will have an additional year to comply with the new rules， the FDA said.
The new regulations apply to packaged foods except certain meat， poultry and processed egg products， which are regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.
BEIRUITKINSHASA Nike Air Max 90 Sale , Aug. 2 (Xinhua) -- On an ordinary but challenging day of late July, a convoy of transport and medical vehicles carrying Chinese peacekeepers left a camp in Lebanon around 6:30 a.m. local time (0330 GMT) for the "Blue Line," a 121-km-long section of Lebanon's border with Israel, where hundreds of thousands of mines had been laid.
The convoy members belonged to the 14th batch of Chinese peacekeeping troops which currently operate in Lebanon and are mainly tasked with clearing mines Nike Air Max Sale , constructing roads, providing humanitarian aid and helping mark a temporary Lebanon-Israel border.
For security reasons on their way to the "Blue Line," all of the Chinese peacekeepers wore U.N. helmets and all the windows of the vehicles were shut, as required.
The convoy had a difficult time navigating the mountain roads Air Max 2018 Sale , and a Xinhua correspondent who was traveling with the Chinese peacekeepers on the day before the 88th anniversary of the founding of the People's Liberation Army (PLA), could feel the bumps in the road.
On the journey, many ruins and bullet holes on residential houses could be seen, which revealed the recent destruction war had inflicted upon the region.
More than one hour later Air Max 2017 Sale , the convoy arrived in the "Blue Line" area,and the peacekeepers got out of the vehicles and headed for the mine ground under the scorching sun.
From where the vehicles where parked to the area where the mines were to be cleared, there was a "safe passage," two meters wide and with wire fences on both sides.
"Today's task is to maintain the passage Air Max 90 Sale ," said Wang Yunlong, leader of the platoon, meaning the unit needed to check and clear the passage again to ensure its safety because rains and landslides may push fresh mines into it.
In temperatures as high as 40 degrees Celsius, Li Jiang Air Max Sale , deputy head of the mine-clearing team, walked cautiously toward the site and began to examine the area with a mine detector.
Soon after, the detector beeped, and Li marked the place. Several minutes later Nike Air Max 2018 Shoes Sale , he found remains of a cluster bomb. He carefully extracted it, a process that Chinese peacekeepers describe as performing "Taiji boxing" with death.
Maintaining the passage is not easier than clearing a new area because the mine detector can detect a lot of signals in the passage, which may come from a segment of iron wire or other debris, he said Nike Air Max 2017 Shoes Sale , and each signal must be taken seriously to avoid any accident.
Chinese peacekeepers such as Li deal with death every day and make silent contributions to keeping the world peace.
