Did you know that food manufacturers continuously modify the recipes of their products? Sometimes these products are actually more nutritious because of these changes. But unless you read labels each time you shop (even for the same items), you may not know it.
Using the NuVal® Nutritional Scoring System, we've listed 10 products that have actually been improved because of manufacturer reformulations. Click on the slides to see how these changes have improved their NuVal Scores! Just remember that NuVal Scores range from 1 to 100. The higher the NuVal Score, the more nutritious the food.
