Food labelling guide
Food labels can help you make better food choices when aiming for a healthy, balanced diet. Colour coding or ‘traffic light’ approach often on front of pack. These amounts are colour coded to show whether something is low (green), medium (amber) or high (red) in a particular nutrient. They usually include the amount of calories (kcals), fat, sugar and salt in the food or drink. They list sugar but not carbohydrates so even if it is green for sugar the food could still have a big effect on blood glucose levels. The ingredients list on back of the pack gives details about ingredients & nutrients. Ingredients are listed in weight order. Remember all carbohydrates sweet and savoury raise blood glucose.
