Message: Thanks for taking this project on. While I appreciate your attempt to modify the label and make it more user friendly, please do not forget the diabetic who often completely relies on the CHO content to determine insulin dosing. When the gram numbers on the package get too small, we struggle to read them(and glasses are not always readily available!).

Percentages are nice, but not really very useful. Gylcemic index is an increasingly useful tool.

Keep up the good work.

I worked to improve school lunches for years —such a challenge!!
