Upcoming Event: FDA Basics Webinar on Using a Food Label to Make Smart Food Choices, Tuesday, August 10, 1:30 p.m. ET

What is "% DV" found on food labels and why is it important? What’s the relationship between serving size and total calories? 

As part of FDA Basics, FDA is hosting a webinar where you can learn more. The featured speaker, Essie Yamini, a nutritionist and a Registered Dietitian with a Ph.D. in nutritional biochemistry, works with the science review team at FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition. Dr. Yamini will give an overview and answer questions about the Nutrition Facts Label.  After the presentation there will be an opportunity to ask questions.

The free 30 minute webinar will be held on Tuesday, August 10, at 1:30 p.m. ET.

Sign in early, since there are a limited number of spots available for the webinar. Materials from the webinar will also be made available on the FDA Web site.
