What to Look for in a Nutritional Label #Infographic

Often modern science is a completely mysterious thing. Nowadays, with the rapid advances in scientific knowledge and technology, it can be difficult to keep up with all the details you might need to keep yourself safe.

Even as technical advancements were abundant, so too was the number of diseases. A huge number of diseases are caused by unhealthy lifestyles and can be avoided by changing certain aspects of your lifestyle and eating into one of the most essential and easily adaptable parts of modern lifestyle.

The food we eat defines everything, and our sleep and mental health can be affected too. Modern diets consist of many frozen and processed foods which do not always seem to be what they are. Since many foods loose nutrients the longer they stay unconsumed, they are going through processes that in the long run can be harmful to you.
Learning to read and appreciate what your food packaging label says will help you make more informed choices about the food you eat, contributing to a better lifestyle.

Generally the information is presented for one single serving, which varies depending on the type of food. And make sure you calculate, instead of generalizing, according to the amount of servings you actually consume.

Calories are always present but they do not reflect exactly how good the food is. Many foods are high in calories but still full of healthy nutrients. Calories are energy only, and not where the energy comes from.

The essential part of the label is where they list all the nutrients. Knowing where those nutrients come from and what they mean to your health is critical.
Use foods composed of proteins and fiber carbs and avoid sugar-based carbohydrates such as plague. Adjusting these nutrients according to your nutritional needs is also important, because most packaged foods measure the percentage of DV according to regular 2,000 or 2,500 calories— per day diets.
