United Touts Nutritional Scoring System Can Help Shoppers Reduce Risk of Chronic Illness [VIDEO]

United Supermarkets has added a nutritional scoring system, in the hopes of reducing the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

United has become the first supermarket in the state to implement the NuVal Nutritional Scoring System, which scores food and beverages on nutritional value from 1 to 100, and the higher the score, the higher the food’s overall nutrition.

United Corporate Dietician Tyra M. Carter discussed the NuVal system, saying “NuVal is a simple way to comparatively shop the nutritional value of products and be proactive in making healthier choices to prevent health problems later in life.”

A study by the American Journal of Preventative Medicine revealed that men and women who consumed a diet with foods that scored high on the NuVal system lived longer and lowered their risk for chronic diseases, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Shoppers can find the scores on shelf price tags in all 51 United Supermarkets.
