What is a Food and Beverage Label?
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) require food and beverage labels on almost all packaged foods and beverages. These are typically seen at the back or side of the packaging and are designed to provide essential information about the product, which would normally include the following:
- Product Name – this is the name of the product accompanied by the brand or manufacturer’s name.
- Ingredient List – these are ingredients listed in descending order by weight, with the primary ingredient coming first. This is the most important part for those with dietary restrictions and allergies.
- Nutrition Facts – this section details the product’s nutritional content, including serving size, calories, macronutrients (fat, carbohydrates, protein), vitamins, minerals, and other relevant information.
- Allergen Information – the information contains the product’s common allergens like wheat, nuts, or dairy.
- Date Labels – these labels contain the expiry date, use-by date, and sell-by date to help you understand when a product is at its best in terms of flavor and safety.
- Serving Size – this part is based on the amount of food that people may eat at one time and is not a recommendation of how much to eat.
Reading Product Dates
Aside from the allergens, one of the most important things to look for in a product label is the product date. There are three types of dates are commonly printed on packaged foods and beverages and these are sell by, use by, and best if used by. Here’s how to tell them apart:
“Use by” tells you how long the product will be at its best quality, which means that if you buy or use a product after the use by date, it might be stale or less tasty.
“Best if used by”, also known as “best if used before,” tells people how long the item will have the best quality or flavor.
“Sell by” is how long the manufacturer suggests that the product should be sold, such as poultry, eggs, meat, or milk.
These dates are actually not required by federal regulations and are added by manufacturers voluntarily.

What You Should Know About the Nutrition Facts Label
A nutrition facts label provides detailed information about the product’s nutritional content. Having a nutrition facts label that follows all government guidelines and requirements is paramount to printing your label.
Here are the details which you may find on a standard nutrition facts label:
Calories: This figure tells you how many calories are in one product serving. It’s a good starting point for assessing the energy content of your food or drink.
- Fat: This section lists total fat and saturated fat content. Pay attention to saturated fat, as consuming too much can increase the risk of heart disease.
- Carbohydrates: This category includes dietary fiber and sugars. Choose products with higher dietary fiber and lower added sugars for a healthier option.
- Protein: The protein content is crucial, especially if you want to maintain or build muscle.
Vitamins and Minerals: This part of the label provides information about the product’s vitamin and mineral content. It’s essential to get a balanced intake of these nutrients for overall health.
% Daily Value (DV): The % DV shows how a serving of the product contributes to your daily nutrient needs based on a 2,000-calorie diet. You also have to keep in mind that individual needs may vary, so it’s not a one-size-fits-all guide.
Footnote: The footnote located at the bottom of the Nutrition Facts section offers a reference point for understanding the % DV in the context of a daily diet.
Understanding Serving Sizes
One of the critical aspects of interpreting food and beverage labels is recognizing serving sizes. The nutritional information on the label is based on a specified serving size, which may or may not match your typical portion. This part is important to take note of as it can impact the overall nutritional content of the product.
For example, if you consume twice the listed serving size, you’ll need to double the values provided for calories and nutrients. This understanding will help you gauge the actual impact of the product on your diet.
Interpreting the Ingredient List
The ingredient list is a pivotal aspect of food labels. The ingredients are typically listed in descending order by weight, with the primary ingredient appearing first.
Here are some tips to easily understand this section:
Keep it simple: Look for products with shorter ingredient lists and easily recognizable natural ingredients. This is often a good indicator of a healthier choice.
Beware of hidden sugars: Sugar can hide under various names, such as high-fructose corn syrup, sucrose, or honey. Be vigilant when examining the ingredient list for added sugars.
Allergens: If you have allergies or dietary restrictions, carefully scrutinize the ingredient list for any allergens or ingredients you need to avoid.
Additives and preservatives: Some products may contain additives or preservatives, which may impact the overall healthiness of the product. Familiarize yourself with common food additives to make informed choices.

Interesting Food Label Claims
Have you ever seen terms on product food labels that promote the products as being healthier? Food label claims that promote the product with the intent to sell more of it may have certain terms to describe certain body-friendly features. Food product manufacturers may make claims about the healthy properties of their products on the front of the packaging. Here are some food claims you’ll normally see in the market.
“Fresh” – means the internal temperature of a product doesn’t go below 26 degrees Fahrenheit ~Agreenerworld
“Light,” or “Lite” – means the food product has 50% or more of their calories that come from fat; as compared to the original version of the food. ~ FoodandNutrition
These claims and more can be seen in most of the products in the market as we are seeing a trend in a health-conscious lifestyle. You can find all of the requirements and regulations on the above website as well as the FDA website itself.
