Are you a sucker for an attractive food label? Do words like “organic,” “natural,” and “local,” draw you in like a magnet causing you to fill your cart with packages that boast of misleading health benefits.
After ten years, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the White House have finally acknowledged that our Nutrition Facts Panel needs a facelift. For the average consumer these ambiguous terms coupled with the need to get dinner on the table can make healthy food shopping overwhelming. Studies have shown that up to 54 percent of American shoppers are reading labels however, that's no guarantee the choices they are making are healthy ones.
Although I could , don't expect to see any big changes for a while.
If you want to be an educated and healthier consumer, here are some misleading labels to watch out for:
Low-fat. A product can be calledlow fatif it contains fewer than 3 grams of fat per serving. While this might sound clear-cut, it can be very deceptive. If your portion size is unrealistic, you’ll be getting more fat than you bargained for. Meanwhile, this tag says nothing about the item’s calories, sugar, or sodium content. Besides, fat is not necessarily the bad guy. As a nation, we tend to be fat phobic — yet there are so many foods that contain fat that are incredibly healthy (like avocado, almonds, olive oil). These foods are not only good for us, but they also provide a multitude of benefits including helping our hearts, stabilizing blood sugar levels and enabling us to feel satiated and while controlling hunger.
Low sugar. Sadly this term means nothing, as it is not an FDA approved term.Reduced Sugar,on the other hand, means that the product has 25% less sugar than the original product (but could still be high in fat, calories and sodium!)Sugar-free(which could also mean high in fat) means that the product has less than .5 grams of sugar per serving. Because sugar-free does not mean calorie-free or fat-free, eating too many sugar-free foods could be costly!
Light.Depending on the product, this term could have several different meanings. An item claiming to belightmust have one-third fewer calories, fat or sodium than the regular version of that same product, such as light bread. However, this does not mean less calories! Take for instance light olive oil which has a lighter color, flavor, and texture than its regular counterpart, yet contains the same120 calories per tablespoon!
For an array of “Package Pick-Up Lines,” as it’s called in the story, you’ll find some more of my quotes in Family Circle Magazine’s February issue and be sure to check out my interview on The TODAY show on label lingo misconceptions.
