Food Categories and NuVal Scores
NuVal Scores have been developed for eight food categories. Each product category has its own scoring curve and average — the break-even point that separates better nutritional options from lesser ones. Choose foods with NuVal Scores that equal or exceed the category average to optimize nutritional benefit for your family.
Note: The NuVal Nutritional System is intended for use in making food choices. It is not a diet or substitute for a doctor's advice about health conditions. NuVal Scores are based on nutrient data from laboratories, manufacturer recipes or on-pack nutrition information and ingredients. Scores listed are calculated as of September 2011.
