Raley’s phasing out nutritional scoring system, will develop own program

West Sacramento-based Raley’s is phasing out a nationally utilized nutrition scoring system by the end of the year and is developing its own program to replace it in 2017.

Raley’s introduced the NuVal nutritional scoring system to its stores in 2011. It was touted as a consumer guide on more than 20,000 food and beverage items, displaying a score ranging from 1 to 100 on each item. Higher scores denote higher nutrition values.

Raley’s spokeswoman Chelsea Minor said some customers have found it confusing.
