Behind the Changing Stars

Wednesday, January 24, 2018 at 12:00pm

The Guiding Stars algorithm is scheduled to be updated at the end of January. The algorithm is the equation we use to determine how foods earn their rating of 0-3 stars, labeling them as good, better, or best nutritional choices. This 30-minute webinar is valuable to anyone who has ever wondered how the stars work.

This webinar will cover:

  • A brief overview of Guiding Stars and how it works
  • A discussion of our Scientific Advisory Panel and how they decide to implement changes
  • A preview of what’s changing about the algorithm and why
  • An overview of the impact of the algorithm changes
  • FAQs about the Guiding Stars algorithm
