  1. NUTRITIONAL FACTS

  2. Nutrition Label Click for Nutritional Label

  3. Serving and Serving Size • This gives you the size and total number of servings in the container. • Example.

  4. Serving Size • ½ cup (114 g) • Servings per container 4 • Food Label

  5. Percent Daily Value • This gives you the dietary allotment of a specific nutrient based on percentage of daily allotment. • Example.

  6. Example: Percent Daily Value • Total fat 13g 20% of daily value. • The food carrying this label accounts for 20 percent of the recommended fat allotment for a 2,000 calorie diet. • Food Label

  7. Recommended Allotment • This gives you the number of grams (weight) of the nutrient recommended for people with two different total calorie intake needs (either 2,000 or 2,500 calories consumed per day). • Example.

  8. Example of Recommended Allotment • A person who needs 2,000 total calories per day, should consume less than 65 grams of total fat per day. • Food Label Nutrient 2,000 2,500 calories calories Total fat Less than 65g 80g

  9. Calorie Content of Nutrients by Weight • This gives you the number of calories in a gram of each nutrient. • Example.

  10. Example of Calories of Nutrients by Weight • A gram of fat contains 9 calories. • Food Label 1g = 9 calories 1g Carbohydrates = 4 calories 1g Protein = 4 calories
