Standard nutrition labels list only a fraction of the number of nutrients present in the food. While fresh vegetables and fruit do not come with labels, frozen ones do. Labels focus on calories, fat content, cholesterol, sugar, and sodium and may mention only 4 additional nutrients. Such labeling actually gives consumers the misleading impression that this is all the particular food has … Continue Reading →
