Kelloggs just introduced a new label to the side of the box: Diabetes Friendly.
What does that mean?
- Provides 30 grams or less of total carbohydrate per serving
- Is low in fat (which is generally 3 grams or less per serving)
- Provides 1 gram or less saturated fat and 0 grams trans fat per serving
- 9 grams or less sugar for cereals
These labels should be showing up on cereal boxes November 2008. (So, could be in stores now.) They might be adding this label to items like snacks soon too.
If you want to know more about this label, please see the Kelloggs page: http://www.kelloggsnutrition.com/live-healthy/diabetes-friendly.html
