Be Claimed.


Do all of the health claims on food packaging confuse you? Well let me define a few for you…

Let’s start with food label claims about calories:

  • Calorie free…………. less than 5 calories per serving
  • Low Calorie……….. less than 40 calories per sering
  • Light……………….. one third fewer calories or half half the fat of the regular product
  • Reduced calorie….. at least 25% less calories than the regular product

Be sure to check back for more tips on reading food labels.
