All About Food Labels
Words of Warning About Food Labels
Food labels must state if the product contains ingredients that contain protein from the eight main allergenic foods. These include:
- Crustacean shellfish
- Tree nuts
The label might say "Contains milk" or "Contains peanuts." This is lifesaving information for people allergic to these foods.
The bottom line: read the Nutrition Facts on your food labels. Let food labels work for you as you establish healthful eating habits.
