Understanding Food Labels
When you buy a food product, you'll see a
lot of things mentioned about the food product on
the package. This is commonly called "Label".
Labeling is very important in every product,
especially for food products, because the person
who is buying the food product must be aware of
the ingredients of the food product. Customers
may not fully understand the things mentioned on
the label. Here we discuss some important things
that are usually printed on the package.

also convey you how many of those calories are
from fat. In most cases, no more than 25 to 35
percent of the entire calories should come from

cholesterol is integrated in one serving size of
the product. It does not distinguish between
