A handy and necessary reminder for those who use processed foods.

Code words/Packages

If you know what these "code words" are trying to tell you, you'll be able to tell at a glance exactly how much of a nutrient (usually calories, fat, cholesterol, or sodium) is in that food, without having to squint at the Nutrition Facts Panel on the back.


Here are the phrases used in most of the nutrient content claims, along with what they mean:

Fats

"Reduced fat." At least 25 percent less fat than the regular version.
"Light" (in fat). Half the fat of the regular version.
"Low fat." 3 grams of fat or less per serving.
Calories

"Reduced calorie." At least 25 percent fewer calories than the regular version.
"Light" (in calories). One-third of the calories of the regular version.
"Low calorie." 40 calories or less per serving.
Sodium

"Low sodium." No more than 140 mg of sodium per serving.
Cholesterol

"Low cholesterol." No more than 20 mg of cholesterol and no more than 2 grams of saturated fat per serving.
Fat and choesterol in meats

"Lean." Less than 10 grams of fat, less than 4.5 grams of saturated fat, and less than 95 mg of cholesterol per serving.
"Extra lean." Less than 5 grams of fat, less than 2 grams of saturated fat, and less than 95 mg of cholesterol per serving.
