Product labels can seem confusing the first time you see them but once you get to understand what each section means, they are quite simple to use:
Nutrition information is given per suggested serving size of the food - this way you can see what you’re actually consuming if you eat this amount.
On pack we tell you the number of suggested servings you will find in this pack.
Reference intake (RIs) can be used to help manage a healthy balanced diet. This % will tell you what contribution to your RI there is in a serving of the food you are about to consume. Compare this with something else you might fancy, then choose the one that’s right for you.
The calories (kcal) and kilojoules (kJ) section of the label helps you to manage your energy intake. You need to be sure that the energy you take in is balanced out by the energy you use.
Key nutrients that impact your health are highlighted on the label. In this example, the quantity of saturated fats is shown to help you monitor your intake.
Before consuming any product, always check the information on the pack.
