Confused by Nutrition Facts on food products? It’s perfectly understandable if you are because there seem to be so many on offer these day.
However, the information is actually important for many health considerations, including improved weight control and better management of PCOS. But it helps if you understand the context of the facts and figures.
The % Daily Value column, for example, is based on an average diet of 2,000 calories day. If you eat fewer or more than that, adjust your intake accordingly.
Dietary Fibre showing a reading of 5 grams or more per serving is considered to be high in fiber.
Sodium content in processed food is very high. So it’s particularly important to keep an eye on label figures and stay within the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s recommended daily maximum of 1,500 mgs a day if you belong to one of these vulnerable groups: those with high blood pressure and African-Americans, plus the middle-aged and elderly. Others should consume less than 2,300 mgs, which is less than a teaspoon.
