Dr. Idamarie Laquatra, PhD, RD, LDNIdamarie Laquatra, assistant professor in the Department of Food and Nutrition, published the results of a consumer survey about the addition of the phrase "added sugar" on the revised Nutrition Facts Panel (NFP) that is being proposed by the Food and Drug Administration.

These results, published in the November issue of the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, indicate that consumers do not understand the "added sugars" terminology. 

More information can be obtained from Laquatra, whose office is in 106 Ackerman Hall.
