It's unbelievable that there is literally no manufactured food product which doesn't have sugar..they just rename sugar to saccharin, sucrose, glucose so people won't notice. Natural sugars are okay with me - as how it occurs in fruits, veggies etc. So, I choose the next best alternative - I use lower quantities of jaggery/palm sugar or natural honey to counter the ill-effects of sugars in products and sweeteners. Also we're trying to build ourselves a diet that does not need added sugar.
As a Coeliac.. YES.. OMG YES!!! If I can't read the label, I don't eat it. Unless it fruit or something. But anything that has been processed I have to read the label. I can end up in hospital otherwise.
Absolutely, I read them often in the supermarket but more often when I get home with the product. What I learn from a label normally doesn't deter me from buying a product, but it may deter me from buying that product often.
I do. I particularly check the sugar content. Just this morning at the supermarket I chose a particular brand because the sugar content was much lower. In fact it was so much lower than the competitors I wondered if it could be correct. (There wasn't any artificial sweetener in it.)
I like to read the labels but have trouble with the small print. If I don"t have my reading glasses or the print is still very small and in a "camouflage" colour, I now use my smart phone to take a photo of the ingredients and then expand the photo on my phone, easy to do and works really well.
I did, but as now 90% of what I buy I have done the reading already. Strange, still no nutritional details for paper towel????
I still how ever, read new labels, or if I do some checking to be sure to be sure.
Darn scary those Fats/sugar/salt content numbers, so if and when there is a change in the product or my choice, especially when a special comes up, I do the numbers check.
One must learn what these numbers mean to fully utilize the details, as it it not so much misleading, it is sometimes just simply quite complex to understand. I have a good idea I believe of what it all means.
