Understanding the Nutrition Facts Table

by Dani Health on August 7, 2010 · 0 comments

Research suggests that for a majority of Canadians, food labels play a key role in providing us with information on the foods we buy. However, the same research indicates we don’t always understand everything we read, and many of us are confused by the terms we see on labels. Is this true for you?

Alberta Health and Wellness has created a Nutrition Facts Guide showing the amounts of each nutrient you should look for when making a healthy food choice.

I’ve included this easy-to-use guide in my newsletter for August. To view, click on the Nutrition News link in the left sidebar.

I’d love to know what you think. Did it help you understand the food label? To make healthier food choices?
