nutrition facts

 Nutrition facts refer to the information about the nutritional content of a food or beverage, including the amount of calories, macronutrients (such as protein, carbohydrates, and fats), micronutrients (such as vitamins and minerals), and other nutrients.

On a food label, nutrition facts are typically listed per serving size, which is usually provided in both grams and a common household measure (such as cups or pieces). The following are the basic nutrition facts that are typically listed on a food label:

  • Calories: the amount of energy provided by a serving of the food
  • Total fat: the total amount of fat in the food, including saturated and unsaturated fats
  • Saturated fat: the amount of saturated fat in the food, which is a type of fat that is typically solid at room temperature and is considered less healthy than unsaturated fats
  • Trans fat: the amount of trans fat in the food, which is a type of fat that is typically found in processed foods and is considered unhealthy
  • Cholesterol: the amount of cholesterol in the food, which is a type of fat that can contribute to heart disease when consumed in excess
  • Sodium: the amount of salt in the food, which can contribute to high blood pressure when consumed in excess
  • Total carbohydrates: the total amount of carbohydrates in the food, including both simple and complex carbohydrates
  • Dietary fiber: the amount of fiber in the food, which is a type of carbohydrate that is important for digestive health
  • Sugars: the amount of naturally occurring and added sugars in the food
  • Protein: the amount of protein in the food, which is important for building and repairing tissues in the body

Additionally, food labels may provide information about other nutrients, such as vitamins and minerals, that are present in the food. This information is typically listed as a percentage of the daily value (% DV) based on a 2,000 calorie diet.
