Nutrition iQ is a nutrition-information program that helps consumers make informed, better-for-you food choices at the store shelf and is available at Albertsons, Cub Foods and Acme grocery stores nationwide.
• The nutrition iQ tag is located on the store shelf as part of a product's price, unit price and bar code identification information. You can look for the nutrition iQ tags to see how a product rates in 11 different nutrient claims in seven categories: excellent or good source of fiber; excellent or good source of calcium; low or healthier level of sodium; excellent or good source of protein; low calorie; low saturated fat; and whole grain content.
• Nutrition iQ uses established U.S. Food and Drug Administration nutrient content claims as a framework to determine the top one or two nutritional benefits of food products that are better for you — regardless of manufacturer, brand or price.
• With more than 60,000 items on grocery store shelves, it can take considerable time to read and compare nutrition labels. Nutrition iQ gives customers a convenient and easy way to evaluate food choices on the spot by providing credible, at-a-glance nutritional information.
