Detail Introduction

What is Food Label?

Food labels are an important tool for consumers to make healthier choices.

Food labels provide information about the nutritional content of the food. This includes the number of calories and other nutrients such as fat, sodium, carbohydrates, and protein.

There are three main types of food labels: Nutrition Facts Label, Food Additive Label, and Allergen Labels (when required).

The Nutrition Facts label includes information on serving size, calories, and other nutrients like fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium. The label also shows how much of each nutrient is in one serving of a food product. This can be very helpful in making comparisons between different products. For example, if you want to compare two frozen dinners that both claim to be low-fat and low-calorie, you can see which has less fat per serving by comparing their Nutrition Facts labels.

Both the Nutrition Facts label and the Food Additive Label can help you choose foods that meet your dietary needs (such as avoiding allergens or lowering your intake of salt).

What Are the Main Components in a Food Label?

A food label is a poster that contains important information about a particular food. The label may provide information on the ingredients, nutrition, and health benefits of the product. It also provides information on how to use the product safely and in accordance with regulations set by the relevant authorities.

The label will usually include:

Product name: This is the brand name of the food product.

Brand and company information: This includes details such as where it was produced, who produced it, when it was made, and what ingredients were used.

Nutritional information: This includes details about how many calories are in the product, and how much fat, sugar and salt are present in each serving size. Nutritional information may also display how much protein, fiber, or vitamin D is present in each serving size as well as any allergens that may be present (e.g., dairy).

Allergen information: This includes details about any allergens that may be present in a product (e.g., nuts). If there are no allergens then this section would simply read “No allergens” or “Contains no allergens” instead of listing specific ones.

 

How Does the Food Label Differ from Nutrient Facts Panel?

The Food Label and the Nutrient Facts Panel are both important in understanding what's in your food, but they serve different purposes.

The Food Label

Every packaged food product that you buy has a label. This includes items such as canned goods, frozen foods, jarred goods, and more. The label is used to provide consumers with information regarding the ingredients and nutrition facts of the product. It also includes information about the brand of the product, as well as its expiration date and any special storage requirements it has.

The Nutrient Facts Panel

The Nutrient Facts Panel is located on the side or back of each package. It contains information about the serving size, calories, carbs, fat, and protein for each item. It also provides information about sodium content and other key nutrients like fiber and vitamins.

 

What Can I Find on a Food Label?

Every food product comes with a label that details what the contents of that package have inside. Food labels can be hard to understand, but it's important to read them to make sure you're getting the most nutritious food for your dollars.

The Nutrition Facts table on a food label will tell you about the nutrients in your food and also tell you how much of each nutrient is in one serving size (see below). The Nutrition Facts table is based on a standard serving size of the food.

A nutrition facts table will include all of the following information:

- Serving size

- Calories

- Fat calories

- Total fat

- Saturated fat

- Cholesterol

- Sodium

- Total carbohydrates

- Fiber

- Sugars

- Protein

You can also find out if there are vitamins and minerals in your food products by looking at the % Daily Value (%DV) column on a food label. The %DV is found under each nutrient listed and tells you how much of each nutrient is in one serving.

What Are the Parts of a Food Label?

A food label is a legal document that contains information about the ingredients in a product. The label also tells you how much of each ingredient is contained in a serving, and how many calories and nutrients are contained in each serving.

The most common types of labels are:

Nutrition Facts panel – This tells you what’s in the food. It includes calories, fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrate, protein, and other nutrients.

Ingredient list – This lists all of the ingredients used to make the product. The ingredient list on cereal boxes, for example, will tell you all of the vitamins and minerals added to it (like vitamin D). The ingredient list on canned soup will tell us which spices were used to flavor it (like garlic powder).

Supplement Facts panel – This tells us what nutrients have been added to foods and beverages that are fortified with vitamins or minerals.

 

What Are the Benefits of Understanding a Food Label?

Food labels are the first place to start when it comes to understanding what you're eating. They can be confusing, but with a little knowledge, you can decode them and make healthier choices.

The Nutrition Facts label is the most important one to read because it tells you how many calories and grams of fat, sodium and other nutrients are in a serving of that food. The label also shows whether the product contains added sugars or any substances that may cause allergic reactions.

The Ingredients list shows all the ingredients in order from most to least. This is useful when looking for hidden sugars or artificial colors in foods.

The Allergens section includes milk, gluten, peanuts, and eggs (among others) as possible allergens in foods.

Other labels include "organic" or "non-GMO." These labels don't tell you anything about nutrition; they just tell you how 'natural' food is — which isn't always better for your health anyway!

 

What Are the Classification of Food Labels?

There are four different classifications of food labels: Nutritional information, ingredient lists, use and storage instructions, and contact information.

Nutritional information labels are found on the back or side of your food product. This label lets you know what nutrients are in your food such as calories, fat, sodium, and vitamins. It also tells you how much is in each serving.

Ingredient lists let you know what ingredients are used to make your food product. The list is split into two categories: major ingredients and minor ingredients. The major ingredients go first because it takes the most of that ingredient to make the product. Minor ingredients go last because it only takes a little of that ingredient to make the product.

Use and storage instructions let you know how to store your food product so that it does not spoil and how long you can keep it before it goes bad.

Contact information lets you know where your food was made or processed in case there is any problem with that particular food product.

 

Why It's Important to Read a Food Label

While we all know on some level that we should be looking at the labels on the foods we buy and that we should be paying particular attention to serving size, fat content, and calories, it can be difficult to know exactly what those numbers mean. Knowing how to read a food label is key to making healthy decisions about what you're eating. Let's take a closer look at why that's so important.

The specific number of calories listed on your food label will help you make choices about how much energy you want to consume in a day. If you have a weight loss goal or are simply trying to maintain your current weight, knowing the caloric value of each food you eat is one of the best ways to keep yourself accountable. For example, if you like granola bars but aren't sure which flavor is better for your diet, looking at the labels will give you a clear picture of which one has fewer calories (and therefore which one won't put as much of a dent in your daily calorie budget).

Beyond calories, there are other key measurements that can help you make more informed choices about what to put in your body. Reading nutrition labels will also inform you about serving size: how many servings per container there are and how large each serving is.
