The nutrition facts label can help you make better dietary decisions, but you must take the time to read it!
Here’s a breakdown:
Serving sizes vary. The total calories are the serving size times the total servings per container.
Trans fat should always be 0 g. There is no safe intake.
Try to choose foods high in fiber, and low in sugar.
The RDI (Recommended Daily Intake) may not be sufficient for athletes, who may need more nutrients.
Take your time and read the ingredient lists. Make sure it’s not too long and you can pronounce everything on it. If not, leave it on the shelf.
