What food labels really mean (Infographic)

The supermarket can be a confusing place. It can be hard to know which words on food labels actually mean that the food is healthy as many have mixed messages. This infographic from HappyCleans takes you through what many of the confusing labels mean so hopefully you can make better decisions on your next trip to the store. For example, natural and organic are very different things. 

The word natural should mean that food contains no artificial ingredients are preservatives but these are only FDA guidelines and are not enforced. The organic label is what you should be looking at these must contain 95% organically produced ingredients.

Chicken labels can also have confusing labels so let’s clear up what all of the different labels mean. For example, a no hormone label shouldn’t cost you more money as it is actually illegal for poultry producers to use hormones when raising chickens. Always try to buy free-range chickens as these chickens will have lived a happier and healthier life.

The bread aisle is another confusing one as all of the different terms mean very different things. Multigrain does not mean bread is more nutritional and all it means is that it contains more than one grain. The bread you should look for is 100% whole grain as this means every nutrient in the grain is accounted for in the bread.

Be careful with snack food as labels like light and reduced fat are of some benefit but remember this is highly calorific food already. Just because some of that is removed does not mean these foods are healthy.

Hopefully, the infographic will help you to make more informed decisions on the next trip to your supermarket. Have a read through it now to gain a deep understanding of the meaning behind the labels.
