Health Canada has amended the potassium and sodium values for specific age groups in the Table of daily values on October 20, 2022. The Table sets out the reference values or recommended amounts of nutrients (the daily value) for specific age groups for nutrition labelling purposes. These are the reference points upon which the % daily values (DVs) in the Nutrition Facts table are based. Manufacturers will have until January 1, 2026 to comply with the updated Table of daily values.
