How do I read the Nutritional Label?
Jiminy Snacks can be incorporated into a nutritious diet. Recent studies show that when favorite foods are included, people actually are more likely to stick to a healthier diet. Jiminy CHiPS provides a nutrition label called “Nutrition Facts.” This label was developed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help you determine which foods fit into a healthy diet, identify nutrients that impact health, and provide guidelines for nutrient claims.
AMOUNT PER SERVING: These are weights, measured in grams or milligrams, and show how much of a nutrient each serving contains. The “% Daily Values” listed next to these values is useful in determining how a food fits into a 2,000-calorie diet.
CALORIES: Lists the number of calories in the serving stated above.
TOTAL FAT: Lists the grams of fat in a serving of the food. Higher fat foods should be balanced with lower fat foods.
SATURATED FAT: This is part of the total fat in food. Don’t add total fat and saturated fat together.
CHOLESTEROL: The cholesterol in all JiMiNY Snack foods is extremely low. In fact, most of our products have a “0” cholesterol count.
SODIUM: The average JiMiNY product contains less than 10% of the Daily Value for sodium.
SERVING SIZE: Now listed in “consumer friendly” terms (ounces, cups, etc.). Be sure to match this number with the amount you are eating.
CALORIES FROM FAT: Total grams of fat multiplied by 9 calories per gram.
PERCENT OF DAILY VALUE (%DV): These numbers show what portion of the Daily Value is provided by one serving of the food. These numbers are useful in determining whether a food is high or low in a certain nutrient, and in balancing your food choices.
SUGARS: Unlike other nutrients, sugars do NOT have a Daily Value.
PROTEIN: Contrary to popular belief, protein is not only found in animal products. We get protein from eating cheese, grains, cereals, and even some protein found in JiMiNY products.
DAILY VALUES: These are reference amounts set by the Government for daily nutrient intake.
