Nutrients

The Nutrition Facts label can help you learn about the nutrient content of many foods in your diet.

The Nutrition Facts label must list:
total fat, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, sodium, total carbohydrate, dietary fiber, total sugars, added sugars, protein, vitamin D, calcium, iron, and potassium.

The Nutrition Facts label may also list:
monounsaturated fat, polyunsaturated fat, soluble fiber, insoluble fiber, sugar alcohols, vitamins (biotin, choline, folate, niacin, pantothenic acid, riboflavin, thiamin, and vitamins A, B6, B12, C, E, and K) and minerals (chloride, chromium, copper, iodine, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, phosphorus, selenium, and zinc).

The Nutrition Facts Label can also help you monitor nutrients you want to get less of and those you want to get more of.

Nutrients to get less of: saturated fat, sodium, and added sugars. Most Americans exceed the recommended limits for these nutrients—and diets higher in these nutrients are associated with an increased risk of developing some health conditions (such as cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure).

Compare and choose foods to get less than 100% DV of these nutrients each day.

Nutrients to get more of: dietary fiber, vitamin D, calcium, iron, and potassium. Many Americans do not get the recommended amount of these nutrients—and diets higher in these nutrients can reduce the risk of developing some health conditions (such as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, anemia, and high blood pressure).

Compare and choose foods to get 100% DV of these nutrients on most days.
