LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - March is National Nutrition Month, so United Supermarkets is launching its new Nutrition Tag Program.
In 13 United stores, consumers can look for color-coded tags on food items to help make healthy choices or follow dietary concerns. "It is a way that a person, if they need to reduce the fat in their diet, if they're trying to reduce sodium, or they're looking for leaner meats or lower fat dairy, if they've got any intolerances, like a gluten intolerance, or they just want lower sugar foods, organic foods- it's a way that they can quickly identify products off the shelf without having to stand there and study labels," said United Supermarkets' Corporate Registered Dietitian Dr. Tyra Carter, PhD.
Here is the list of tags you'll see at United and what they mean:
