simple steps to read the nutrition table
Step 1: Look at the Serving Size
Compare the serving size on the Nutrition Facts Table to the amount that you eat. If you eat more or less than the serving size on the label, you will get more or less of the nutrients that are listed.
Step 2: Use the % DRI/NRV (Means)
Using the % DRI/NRV value can tell you whether an amount of food has “a little” or “a lot” of a nutrient. As a general rule of thumb, 5% or less is “a little” for any nutrient and 15% or more is “a lot” for any nutrient.
Step 3: Read the Ingredient List
Taking a look at the ingredient list can you help understand the product beyond the Nutrition Facts Table. Use this guide to get to know ingredients for nutrients that fall under different names.
