Random Post: FDA Serving Size Changes
You remember last year how the FDA said that changes were coming to the nutrition label? I remember it happening but I didn't exactly go scouring the FDA announcement to dive deep in the specifics of it all. Basically I've just been waiting for the changes to kick like everyone else. As the title of this posts suggest though, there is something else that is changing.
As you can see, serving sizes are going to become more realistic. I like to think that I've been a long term proponent of pacing yourself while eating ice cream, but getting 4 servings from a pint is a pretty hard thing for me to do. Yes there are times when I inhale a pint in two servings (made easier if it's regular ice cream and not heavier, super premium ice cream), but I really do think 3 is a fair number for a pint. So instead of a review today, I will ask a simple question: how many servings do you get from a pint? or a quart if that's your thing? do you approve of the FDA's changes? or is it just really boring waiting for the 2017 ice cream season to start?
