Credible Nutrition Information

It is often difficult to discern what nutrition information is correct. Following is a list of credible sources for nutrition information. Remember, don’t trust everything you read and do some investigative work with these sources if you have questions. The worst thing you can do is “google” something and believe the first thing you read!
