I find it remarkable that the US FDA, after years of tweaking and no doubt lots of time and money invested, could only come up with a food label that is terribly confusing! The left side shows a typical food label, mixing good things (e.g. fiber) with bad things (e.g. cholesterol) and having no demarkation or other distinction between those that are good, bad, or neutral. The right side shows a decorated version (from the FDA's nutrition label page) that reveals the truth: the items in gold show be limited, the items in blue should be sought out (while the remaining white items are presumably neutral??).
Shouldn't they have grouped them more clearly with explicit headings, e.g. "Limit the following" and "Eat lots of these" ? What possible rationale could there be for this hodgepodge of nutritional entities?
[I have included the physical tag because I take that to generally mean relating to non-software specific design even though technically a label is not a physical manifestation.]
