FOOD LABELS AND SOLE SISTERS!

May 30, 2019

If you’re like me, the first thing you do when you pick up a packaged food item is look for  the nutrition label.  It can sometimes be confusing when trying to read the label because the information listed can be misleading.

For example, when you see the calorie & macronutrient information, you cannot assume that those numbers apply to the entire food item.  You have to be sure to check the SERVING SIZE.   For example, in the graphic below –>  290 calories applies to one serving and there are 5 servings in the entire package.  This means, only 1/5 of the food item is 290 calories, NOT THE WHOLE THING.  So to portion it out and get 290 calories worth, you have to measure 1/5 of the contents or 200 g as listed in parentheses next to the serving size.
