Food packages are allowed to display only a handful of nutrition claims (such as "no sugar added"). The manufacturer must support any nutrition claim on the package by listing the related nutrients on the nutrition facts label. There are no regulations on the placement, size, or color of the claim, which makes comparing products difficult -- until you look at the nutrition facts panels side-by-side.
