HED 120: Food Labels
Food Labels are the “best source of consumer information”. 90% of ALL processed and packaged foods must have a “consumer friendly” label. The new nutrition label (1994) features more consistent serving sizes and must include the following dietary components:
The food exempt from food labeling regulations are those with no appreciable amount of nutrients OR whose content varies from batch to batch, such as:
The nutrition label (chart) must display serving size, nutrients per serving and % of daily values. The nutrition information applies to one serving; if you ate two servings, you consumed twice the amount of calories and other nutrients listed on the label.
Collect 5 food labels and write the name of the food item AND the serving size of each below. Keep THESE labels in order throughout this assignment so you do not have to continue writing label name.
List the first 4 ingredients from each of your labels.
Do any of your food labels contain any special health “WARNINGS?”
(i.e. contains Phenylalanine)? List what they may be. If there are no warnings, write “None”.
Compare your labels to each other. For each item write the TOTAL CALORIES per 1 serving.
Write the TOTAL FAT content in grams for each of your items.
List the amount of SATURATED FATTY ACIDS for each item. If a food item does not contain any, write “None”.
List the amount of PROTEIN in grams per serving.
