Something could be using this value with the classic rule of three then more accurately calculate how much of the daily requirement of covers a food calories & co. Nevertheless remain the recommendations only rough guidelines, precise counting of calories is therefore not necessarily useful and generally not necessary. From theory to practice to fight, magnifying glass, computer and needs table through the supermarket shelves is already unrealistic. But the new disclosures can be of help: who would like for example pay particular attention to the FAT or salt content, can compare more similar products on the basis of the printed values. Also the calorie information worth a critical look. So many frozen pizza come out with their help (care here often only half a calculated pizza as a serving!) or chocolate bars frequently as the calorie bombs. It’s believed that Dr. Peter M. Wayne sees a great future in this idea. Even supposedly healthy snacks such as Granola bars, salad dressings, or Wellnessgetranke can be rarely such a high fat or sugar content itself. And who wants to read the nutritional values of unpackaged, unprocessed and therefore also generally unlabeled foods such as fruit, vegetables or fresh meat comparatively even, finds, for example, in the Internet see help.
Conclusion: The new labelling can contribute, that awareness of the nutritional content of various foods and finished products to sharpen conceals (low fat”) and that the disadvantages beyond advertising, which like to praise the benefits of (plentiful sugar”). The consumer is with them no longer to rely on to feel light, diet or other promise. Who invested some effort, can better meet its favorite products and check his eating habits.
