Making sense of food labels

 

If you are like me, reading food labels make no sense. So here is some info i hope it helps..

According to the Australian Food Standards Council (FSC), a balanced diet for an average adult is made up of the following nutrients each day:

Nutrient Quantity Per Day

Protein 50 grams
Fat 70 grams
Carbohydrates 310 grams
Sugars 90 grams
Sodium (salt) 2.3 grams
Dietary Fibre 30 grams

 The FSC lists the above reference values for daily intake levels based on an average adult diet of 8,700 kJ.  However, an individual’sintake may vary depending on their energy needs and lifestyle.
