This book is meant to help you determine the best foods to buy by enlisting the aid of a powerful weapon that can help you succeed in meeting your personal needs while cutting through the confusion— and that’s the food label. The label has been there for years, right in front of you, but you may have ignored it. I understand. And believe me, you’re not alone. Labels can be misleading, full of terms you don’t know. You might think that since labels are carefully regulated there would be no room for misinterpretation about what goes on the package . . . right? Wrong. Labels are not just about government regulations and definitions, they are about educating and enticing consumers. But there are certain circumstances where the facts get twisted and additional interpretation is necessary.
