Impact of New Labeling for Daily Values on Total Nutrient Intakes from Foods and Beverages

Changes to the Nutrition Facts Panel are underway following recently issued regulations by the FDA to correspond with current Institute of Medicine (IOM) Dietary Reference Intakes. However, the expected impact of this new labeling of Daily Values (DVs) on nutrient values is unknown. The objective of this project is to use the 2009-2010 and 2011-2012 NHANES cycle releases to evaluate the impact of new labeling DVs on total nutrient intakes from foods and beverages within the US population and among children and adults overall, as well as by age groups.
