Reading Labels

When you're studying food labels at the grocery store, keep in mind what "free" means. According to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, "free" means that the food contains none of or only a very small amount of the nutrient in question: fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, sodium, sugar or calories. "Calorie-free" means fewer than 5 calories per serving. "Fat-free" means less than 0.5 grams of fat per serving.
