Don’t be fooled by food labels – get the facts on fats

9 Oct

*       Fat free Product has less than 1/2 gram of fat per serving. *       Low-saturated fat Product has 1 gram of saturated fat or less per serving. *       Lowfat Product has 3 grams of fat or less per serving. *       Reduced fat Product has at least 25 percent less fat than the regular version. If the regular food is high in fat — such as premium ice cream — then the reduced-fat type may still be high in fat.

*       Light in fat Product has 50 percent less fat than the regular version. As in reduced-fat foods, the healthfulness of the “light” product depends on the total fat content; but the light version is a better choice (as long as you don’t eat more than twice as much).
