Food Label Glossary

If you’ve ever felt like understanding food labels would require foreign language certification, you’re not alone. Most people are confused about the meaning behind the words they see on packages. Believe it or not, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates the food industry’s vocabulary. Unfortunately, marketers are in stiff competition to make their product stand out in your eyes.

Watch as our dietitian Rebecca Scritchfields helps you decode nutrition labels.
