Kandy Man fights back

Min blogged about the proposed changes to nutritional labels a while back, and it's no surprise that the sugar industry is fighting back, taking issue with the "added sugar" line specifically. I clicked through to their open letter on the subject, and i don't see anything substantive to their resistance, which isn't surprising because i can't imagine them having a case. As the article says:

The reality is that Big Sugar is likely reeling in remembrance of what the addition of trans fat to labels in 2006 did to the ingredient (it's now virtually non-existent).

As an aside, in the example they use in the article, the percent of dietary fiber goes down in the new label, even though the number of grams remains the same. Are they also increasing the RDA for fiber, or is that just a mistake? Because we're vegans and we can barely hit our fiber targets with the current RDA. I don't know how the rest of you do it.
