Learn to Become a Label Reading Ninja!
Use this quick-and-easy method to find health-promoting products in your grocery store!
Never, ever, ever believe anything on the front of a package. Instead, go to the nutrition facts panel and read the ingredients list—that’s where the actual truth lives.
Here’s your quick list to determine if the label you’re reading passes the PLANTSTRONG sniff test.
1) Sodium: Your recommended total daily intake should be around 1500-2000mg daily so when reading a label, you want the number of calories per serving to be equal to or lesser than the number of milligrams of sodium per serving. (For example: If the number of calories per serving in your item is 250 calories, then you want the amount of sodium to be 250mg or less). You’re looking for that quick-and-easy 1:1 ratio.
2) Added Oils: We avoid all extra oils. This includes those that have erroneously been labeled as “healthy oils” like olive oil, coconut, grapeseed, safflower, and canola oil. If you see a bunch of added oils in the ingredient list, put it down!
