Apparently, those scores don't make sense to the National Consumers League, an organization that recently put in a complaint about the scores, calling them "wacky."
Dr. David Katz, the nutrition and health expert behind the system defends NuVal scores, stating that healthy-sounding foods like canned fruits contain more calories from added sugar rather than from actual fruit.
What do you think? Have you seen NuVal scores in your store? Do they help you make better nutrition decisions?
