Check the Nutrition Facts table to help you make informed food choices!

Provided By:

(NC)-The Ingredient List and the Nutrition Facts table on a food package contain key information to help you make informed food choices when you're in the grocery store. They tell you what ingredients are used most and what nutrients the product provides. "Now that all food packages use a standard way to list all the information about a product, it's easier to make informed decisions," explains Carol Dombrow, registered dietitian with the Heart and Stroke Foundation. "The Nutrition Facts table can help you compare products and decide which one might be the healthier choice for you and your family."

• The ingredient list starts with the ingredient used most in the product.

• The Nutrition Facts table (see example) tells you how many calories and nutrients there are based on the product's serving size.

• When you compare products, make sure the serving sizes are similar.

• If you eat 2 times the serving size, you will get double the listed calories and nutrients.

• % Daily Value tells you if there is a little or a lot of a specific nutrient such as fat, sodium, or Vitamin C in a product.

• Look for higher % Daily Value for nutrients such as fibre, Vitamin A and C, Calcium or Iron.

• Look for a lower % Daily Value for fat, saturated and trans fat, cholesterol and sodium.

• Limit the amount of saturated and trans fat per serving.

• Healthy individuals should consume 21 to 38 grams of fibre daily. Choose foods with 2 grams or more of fibre per serving.

• Look for the Health Check symbol on food products. This means that the products have been reviewed by the Heart and Stroke Foundation's registered dietitians and meets nutrient standards based Canada's Food Guide. More information on making healthy food choices is available online at healthcheck.org.
