nutritionIQ™

nutritionIQ is a nutrition navigation system designed to help shoppers make better informed, nutritious choices at the store shelf, in stores operated by SUPERVALU®,  a leader in the grocery retailing industry, and the parent company of ACME®, ALBERTSONS®, bigg's®, BRISTOL FARMS®, CUB®, FARM FRESH®, HORNBACHER'S®, JEWEL-OSCO®, SHAW'S/STAR MARKET®, SHOP ‘N SAVE® and SHOPPERS®.

nutritionIQ is a supermarket nutrition navigation system designed to help shoppers make better informed, nutritious choices at the store shelf, in stores operated by Supervalu, the parent company of 2500 supermarkets nationwide, including Albertsons and Shaw/Star Market.  Using established FDA nutrient content guidelines as a framework, and based on sound science and dietetic nutrition standards for eating well, staff from the Joslin Clinic at Joslin Diabetes Center developed criteria for determining the top one or two nutritional benefits for a wide variety of food products.  Each product in a qualifying category which meets certain nutrition criteria has a shelf tag highlighting its nutrition characteristics, such as ‘high fiber’ or ‘low sodium.'  The result is a credible at-a-glance guide shoppers can trust that also gives them the information they need to make choices appropriate for them.  The program covers fresh produce, deli/meats/fish, bakery and packaged foods.
