Portland, Maine — June 8, 2016 — Guiding Stars, North America’s leading nutrition guidance program, today announced that the organization has updated its approach to factoring dietary cholesterol into its ratings system in response to evolving scientific evidence and changes reflected in the latest 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Guiding Stars’ patented nutrition rating algorithm no longer imposes debits on foods that contain dietary cholesterol. Under the new algorithm, only foods with the very highest amounts of dietary cholesterol, 300 mg or more per 100 calories, will not earn stars.
I can remember well when Guiding Stars first was launched; it was a concept that I liked a lot, and wrote about a lot here on MNB. It wasn’t the only one out there, and there are people and companies with preferences for one or another.
