I've been hearing more and more about this NuVal Nutritional Scoring System, so I had to learn a little about it. If you haven't heard, NuVal is a nutritional rating score given to food in the grocery store that allows you to make better choices when you go grocery shopping. It was developed by nutrition and medical experts that are independent from the food industry. I think this is amazing and will help consumers make better choices and hopefully create competition within the food industry. Foods are rated on a scale of 1-100 with 100 being the most valuable to your health. Not many grocery stores have this system in place, but I did see Tops Friendly Markets on the list (grew up shopping there) and this list should grow with time. To find out which grocery stores have NuVal, click here. To see a sample of the scoring, click here. You may be surprised by some of the foods you are buying now!
Please share so that we can all BeneFIT!
