Thank you for the great information!
Always reading labels and I find the serving sizes do not correlate with what people actually eat.
I dislike when one serving is given in one form of measurement but then the calories are given in another form. Takes a mathematician to figure it out.
I read labels all the time. Serving size many times is a joke so they can claim 'healthful' amounts of calories and nutrients. A small bag of crisps having 2.3 servings-JOKE.
Label percentages can be tricky. Thanks for the article!
I was looking at some snack bars that was on a discount table once and saw one that was under 100 calories. I looked at the label and read that one serving was 1/3 of the bar. The bar was only 4 inches long. I wonder how many people were fooled into getting it.
Good article ... shows that everything printed isn't always as it seems.
Good to know
Labels are so tricky. Great information thanks!
