The Nutrition Guide identifies six attributes supported by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) nutrient health standards. These attributes include Low Fat,
Low Sodium, High Fiber, Gluten Free, Sugar Free and Low Calorie. If a food meets one or more of these guidelines a checkmark will appear on the shelf tag to help guide you in your food selections.
Note: Development of cancer depends on many factors. Diets low in saturated fat (<.5 g per serving) and cholesterol (<2 mg per serving) may reduce the risk of heart disease, a disease associated with many factors. Check nutrition labels for saturated fat and cholesterol levels.
All nutrition Guide signs are based on the food manufacturer’s labeling, including the Nutrition Facts Panel and ingredient listing, for each product. The signs are based on the manufacturer’s smallest stated serving size as packaged.
