Understanding food labels

Labels on packaged foods provide information that can help you make healthier food choices.


Understanding how to read food labels can help you choose foods with less saturated fat, salt (sodium) and kilojoules, and with more fibre. They can also provide information on the amount of carbohydrate in the food you eat, to help manage your blood glucose levels.
