Finding healthy food in the store can sometimes be like finding a needle in a haystack. This infographic from HappyCleans takes you through the real meaning of food labels you may find a bit confusing at the store.

Food labels help to drive sales and their use can be a bit misleading. For example, do you know what the word natural really means? Many people believe it has the same meaning as the word organic but any guidelines related to the word natural are only recommended by the FDA. Organic is what you should really be looking for as any food labeled organic must have at least 95% organically produced ingredients.

Don’t be fooled by some labels you may see on chicken. If you see a store charging more for chicken with no hormones, then don’t pay it. It is actually illegal for poultry producers to use hormones when raising chickens.

Bread labels can also be a bit of a minefield as all the terms used are so similar. You should look for breads that are 100% whole grain as this means every nutrient in the grain is accounted for in the final product. Read all about food labels in the infographic now.
