SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

In an effort to make healthier food choices at the grocery store, Brookshire Grocery Company invited the Knock It Off Team to go shopping in one of their stores. 

Brookshire Grocery Company allowed the team to come inside of its Super One Foods store on Shreveport Barksdale Boulevard.  Company representative, Rebecca Sanders introduced the team to the company's NuVal System. 

You may have noticed small numbers on the bottom left corner of the price tags in Brookshire's or Super One Foods.  The numbers range from 1 to 100.

Team leader and LSU Health Nutrition Specialist Dr. Dennis Wissing said basically the store uses the good nutrients and they divide the number by bad nutrients to come up with the NuVal number.  The higher the number, the healthier the product. 

Sanders says the company just wants to make everything better for the consumer and give them an overall shopping experience that is just outstanding and second to none.

You can find the NuVal labels at Super One Foods and Brookshire's grocery stores.
