Nutrition labels weren't always required, but as foods increased  their claims for health benefits, it became necessary for the FDA  to regulate these claims. A nutrition label is now required if  there is a claim regarding the benefits of specific ingredients.
"The % Daily Value is the percentage of a nutrient that one serving of the product contributes toward the daily recommended amount." This is based on a 2,000 calories per day diet. For example a food label may say 12g of fat = 18% daily value. This means that 12 grams of fat is 18% of the total...
