This is so helpful. I've never paid attention to percentages but this seems like a no brainer.

The 5% / 20% thing is a HUGE help... I always ignored those percentages because, on a daily calorie range far below 2000, I didn't what to do with them! Thanks for the tip!

Great to know......I will just remember this as a math problem: 5- is good & 20+ is bad = a healthy food. I will be sharing this with my friends. Thanks!

This is a great article! I now have a more practical idea of what I should be looking for what reading those labels at the grocery store -- I found the 5% and 20% refererences and the info about needing to adjust the percentages based on the number of calories in my plan particularly enlightening. Thanks!

I just wish that companies would be consistent - there are times when the label says 250 ml (or 1 cup) and the bowl of soup (for example) is a single serve container of 341 mL - just do the calories etc for the whole bowl!

This article is great. It helps make sense out of all the #'s and %'s and what they mean.

Very helpful! Never understood the percents before so I didn't pay attention to them. Now I understand food labels much better!

When I start watching the salt intake for my sweet hubby, began reading labels of what we ate, I was sure the food industry was doing its best to be legal and obscure. Sure, it is listed but you have to be an informed consumer and translate the contents. I make most of what we eat now from scratch, healther and tastes great!
