I googled this. To legally call something low fat, it should have 3 grams of fat or less per 100 grams. There is no set standard yet for marking something low carbs.

hi,believe low fat food contains low levels of saturated fat and is high on unsaturated fat, which is considered to be good for the body. On the other hand, low carb foods pertain to foods having low sugar content, or is made up of other complex forms of sugars, thus is not easily converted to energy unlike glucose and fructose. A sample of this is brown rice.

When I enter in recipes it gives the option to classify it as 'low fat' or 'low carb' - etc.

But I don't know what #'s are considered to *be* low fat.

Is low-fat less than 5 grams of fat per serving? 10 grams?

Same thing with carbs, etc - what *is* "low" - 10 carbs, 20 carbs?

Because of this - I don't classify my recipes at all eventhough I'd LIKE to do so.
