New labeling system influences consumers to make healthier choices, trial reveals

Singapore’s new mandatory labeling system, called Nutri-Grade (NG), is likely to encourage consumers to purchase beverages with lower sugar content, suggests a trial by researchers at Duke-NUS Medical School. The findings, published in the International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity, show that NG labeling can empower people with chronic conditions such as diabetes to make healthier choices, with trial participants opting for drinks with 1.5g less of sugar per serving—equivalent to about 2.9g of sugar per 330ml can.
