The article informs that Coca-Cola Co. and PepsiCo Inc. are revamping the nutrition labels on some of their most popular packages to show the total number of calories instead of just per-serving details. With the new labels, consumers will no longer need to do their own math to figure out how many calories are contained in products that are generally consumed in one sitting, like a 20-ounce bottle of Coke Classic or a small bag of Frito-Lay chips. Coke said the change, which involves the U.S. market only, will take effect in 2005. DeCecco said PepsiCo will phase in the label changes over the next several months.
