The use of a nutrition table on food products is important for several reasons. Here are some examples:
The nutrition table allows for comparison between different foods, making it easier to choose healthier options. By analyzing the nutritional values of similar foods, significant differences in terms of calories, essential nutrients, and food additives can be identified. This helps consumers make informed choices, opting for more nutritious foods that meet their needs.
Diet and health control:
By checking the nutritional values of foods, it is possible to monitor calorie intake, control the amount of fats, sugars, and sodium consumed, and balance the proportion of micronutrients. This is especially relevant for people with dietary restrictions, specific health conditions, or weight control goals.
Information about nutrients:
These nutrients play essential roles in maintaining a balanced diet and promoting health. By consulting the nutrition table, consumers can identify which nutrients are present in a particular food and make more conscious food choices.
The nutrition table is mandatory for packaged foods and those with nutritional or health claims.
It should include information about energy value, carbohydrates, proteins, total fats, saturated fats, trans fats, dietary fiber, and sodium. Additionally, the amounts of total sugars and added sugars should be included when applicable.
It should be presented clearly, legibly, and prominently on the product packaging. The information should use standardized units of measurement and appropriate font styles and sizes to facilitate reading.
