Prominent Physician Organization Endorses NuVal(TM) Nutritional Scoring System
Date:1/19/2010

BRAINTREE, Mass., Jan. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The American College of Preventive Medicine (ACPM), a leading organization of some of the country's top physicians committed to preventing disease and promoting health, has officially endorsed the NuVal Nutritional Scoring System as an easy and effective way to help consumers learn about the foods they buy.

NuVal gives all foods a score from 1 to 100; the higher the score, the higher the food's overall nutrition. All NuVal scores are provided on the supermarket shelf, making it easy for consumers to compare the overall nutrition of the foods they buy at a glance.

"ACPM supports evidence-based and meaningful nutrition labeling that can guide consumers to healthier eating," said ACPM President Mark B. Johnson, MD, MPH, FACPM. "ACPM has reviewed the NuVal nutritional rating system and found that it meets the ACPM criteria for support."

Johnson noted that with the rising rates of obesity and diabetes, NuVal could be helpful in guiding people to the most nutritious food in a supermarket. "We believe that arming consumers with easy-to-understand, at-a-glance information about the nutritional quality of the food they purchase, at the point of purchase, can have a significant impact on changing their eating behaviors," Johnson said. Johnson added that ACPM received no financial compensation for its endorsement, which was purely merit based.
