The article announces that the University of New Hampshire in Durham has introduced the Guiding Stars rating system that analyzes recipes and rates them with stars to give customers an idea about the food they choose. Director of dining Jon Plodzik says analyzing the recipes is like a debit and credit system where a food item becomes a debit if it has a lot of sodium and a credit if it contains fibers. Food items that receive high ratings are vegetables, beans, and sauces such as marinara.
