Smart reading every food label


How do we calculate our daily calories intake? The most common answer is Read food label to measure the amount you take. Here is a simple tip, we should learn to be a smart consumer in reading food label, go for free or low health claims when purchase foods that might contain sugar, fats, sodium and calorie for healthy purpose. When the label shows that calorie per serving for that particular food is <5 Kcal means it is calorie free; sugar free if <0.5g per serving; fat free if <0.5g per serving; sodium free if <5mg; Trans fat free if <0.5g per serving and cholesterol free if <2mg per serving.


While for low health claims, <40 Kcal per serving means low calorie; low fat if <3g per serving; low sodium if <140mg per serving and low cholesterol if <20mg per serving. So, consumers and healthy diet lovers, please read and choose wisely. It can make a difference for your health in a long term period. In case you need any advice, feel free to email me too!

 
在这里,我也想分享一些读取食品标签时有用的技巧。我们应该学会作为一个精明消费者的利益,以确定摄取的成分。我鼓励购买时,选购零或低成分的食品,这包括糖,脂肪,钠和卡路里。当标签显示该特定的食物,每份食物的热量是‘5卡路里’意思是零卡路里的;无糖如果每份<0.5克,无脂肪如果每份<0.5; 无钠如果每份<5毫克;无反式脂肪如果每份<0.5 和无胆固醇如果每份<2毫克

至于低食品标签的例子,低热量每份<40卡路里,低脂肪如果每份<3; 低钠如果每份<140mg,低胆固醇如果每份<20毫克
