Nutrition Facts Panel Turns 20 It's been 20 years since the FDA required Nutrition Facts panels to appear on food packaging, and a story published in Rutgers Today suggests the effort has gone a long way toward helping people eat healthier. According to the director of the Institute for Nutrition Interventions at the Rutgers School of Health Related Professions, about 75% of American say they have referred to Nutrition Facts while food shopping.
