POTASSIUM
Potassium plays major roles in maintaining
normal blood pressure, nerve signaling and
muscle contraction.  
Recommended intake: 4,700 milligrams/day
Usual intakes: 2,537 milligrams/day from food
Food sources:
ADDED SUGARS
Added sugars are not an essential part of the diet.
There is room for small amounts of added sugars
in a healthy diet, although we eat more than is
recommended.
Recommended intakes: <10% of total calories
Usual intakes: 13% of total calories
Food sources: Look for the amount of added
sugars below "Total Sugars" on Nutrition Facts
labels.
The  Nutrition Facts label is getting a makeover.
Most products will be using the updated label by
January 1, 2020, and some already are.
Here are three new additions to the Nutrition Facts
label and why they matter.
VITAMIN D
Vitamin D  helps with calcium absorption,
maintaining strong bones. Vitamin D is difficult to
come by in food, which is why most of us don’t
get enough of it.
Recommended intake: 15 micrograms/day
Usual intake: 4.9 micrograms/day from food
