The compliance date for the revised nutrition facts panel has been extended, companies were given a two or three-year extension based on their gross annual income; two or three years in which consumers will not be as well informed about their added sugar consumption as they would be with the revised nutrition facts panel. A quasi-experimental comparison group pretest-posttest design was applied to collect information about change of intentions to consume foods or beverages with varying amounts of added sugar in response to added sugar content on the NFP. Demographic information was also collected to analyze whether there were any demographic variables that correlated with change in intentions after added sugar content had been disclosed compared to when added sugar content was not disclosed on the NFP. The results indicated no significant relationships, however 7.7% more students decreased their consumption intentions when added sugar content was disclosed than when it was not disclosed. The findings of this study are initial indications that the revised NFP are more effective at reducing added sugar consumption when compared to a NFP without added sugar disclosed for college students.
