Bud Light rolls out big­ger nutri­tion la­bels

The Kansas City Star - - Business -

Beer drinkers can’t claim bliss­ful ig­no­rance for much longer.

Start­ing next month, pack­ages of Bud Light will have prom­i­nent la­bels show­ing the beer’s calo­ries and in­gre­di­ents as well as the amount of fat, car­bo­hy­drates and pro­tein in a serv­ing.

Bud Light is likely the first of many to make the move. The la­bels aren’t legally re­quired, but ma­jor beer mak­ers agreed in 2016 to vol­un­tar­ily dis­close nutri­tion facts on their prod­ucts by 2020.

Bud Light went with a big, black-and-white la­bel, sim­i­lar to the ones re­quired by the U.S. Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion on pack­aged foods.
