Your labels explain how much of each nutrient are in each serving. But what’s a FoodState Nutrient, exactly?
Think of our FoodState Nutrients as handy helpers to the farm fresh ingredients that go into every MegaFood bottle: each vitamin or mineral is paired with an ideal whole food using our unique process to deliver guaranteed potency, and the benefit of health-promoting compounds present with the whole foods themselves. See how they’re made!
What’s the difference between ‘with’ food and ‘in’ food?
Thanks for noticing! First, we’ll tell you: there have been NO changes to how we make our products and deliver our nutrients. (Like, nada. Niente. Non.) This word change is a matter of creating clarity (and who doesn’t want more of that?). MegaFood is all about delivering farm-fresh foods in all of our products, but it takes more than a handful of fruits and veggies to make a tablet (see above for our FoodState Nutrients process!). Understanding your supplements shouldn’t be tricky, and we hope this clears things up a bit. MegaFood products deliver nutrients with whole foods, which deliver the full range of phytonutrients (and more!) naturally found in each ingredient—all crafted on site at our headquarters in Manchester, New Hampshire, using the most stringent of ISO and regulatory standards to deliver the purest, highest quality products available. (Phew!)
What prompted the FDA to make the changes?
The label standard you’re used to seeing (for all supplements and food products, not just MegaFood) is over 20 years old. Since then, a lot has changed (think of how much your life has changed in twenty years!)—including scientific data, new nutrition, and public health research—and so the FDA wants to make sure you have access to the most current information possible.
When will I first see label changes?
Some new labels have already hit shelves (starting in fall 2017); the rest will roll out through summer 2018.
How can I learn more about these FDA changes?
Glad you asked! The FDA has a dedicated website with more information, including data and fact sheets, that you can access here. We also encourage you to check out our Resource section, which provides more behind-the-scenes info on what we’re doing at MegaFood HQ, and our Store Locator, so you can scope out the new labels yourself.
