OGO Foods has filled hundreds of bags of highway trash through our participation in the Adopt-A-Highway program. We have also supported local food banks to help local disaster victims with our handy, complete nutrition snacks.
How it all began
Ever spend some time looking at a vending machine and wanting something healthier and that you actually want to eat? We have too. So, we began offering a complete nutrition snack with a little crunch and great flavor. Over time, we have updated our Crisps to stay current with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Daily Value guidelines and labeling requirements. We are proud to offer a product that meets the newest guidelines released in 2016 and the USDA's Smart Snack requirements.

Q: Why are the % Daily Values for Sodium (Salt) and Choline lower than the other values?
A: The recommended Daily Value for Sodium was reduced in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) most recent update. Research by The National Institutes of Health (NIH), a part of the FDA, recommends an even lower daily consumption level (https://www.nap.edu/read/10925/chapter/8). We are following the NIH guidance. Similarly, NIH guidance for Choline suggests a lower limit for adolescents and we have followed that recommendation (https://www.nap.edu/read/6015/chapter/14#403).
Q: If the Added Sugars figure on the Nutrition Facts panel shows 16% Daily Value, whereas the rest of the nutrients are at 8%, does this mean the Added Sugars are high?
A: The Added Sugars Daily Value target is based on an expectation that increased sugar intake will result in lower intake of other nutrients. Since the Added Sugars are a part of Total Carbohydrates and these are the same Daily Value of 8% as the other nutrients, the Added Sugars for the Crisps do not detract from complete nutrition per the FDA guidelines.
