Do you know how to read food labels?

Posted in Blog

When you read nutrition labels on your favorite foods, do you sometimes feel you’re reading a different language?

If you do, you are not alone! That’s why this Tuesday, July 15 at 1 p.m., there will be a Twitter chat based completely on the subject of food labels.

The chat is hosted by Everyday Health and Bonnie Taub-Dix, a registered dietician and columnist for Everyday Health. Together they will answer questions about what ingredients are good and bad, how to decipher the labels, and what it really means when foods are “organic,” “gluten-free,” “all-natural,” and “fortified.”

This sort of information is especially important for individuals with diabetes, Crohn’s disease, food allergies, and more. At HLN, we even have a segment in our paper written by professional meal planners who specialize in diets for individuals with diabetes.
