Nutrition labels on the back of food packages may soon become easier to read. The FDA says knowledge about nutrition has evolved over the last 10 years, and the labels need to reflect that.

The agency is considering revisions, and nutritionists have their own wish lists of changes. 

University of Minnesota Food Science and Nutrition Professor Ted Labuza stopped by the KSTP-TV studio to talk about some of the requests and the reasons behind them.
