Often times many consumers have a hard time understand what exactly is inside the food they eat and this helpful infographic titled 'What's in a Label? How to Decipher Grocery Terms' is a useful read to help bridge that gap. The infographic was put together by Fix and it shares helpful tips on understanding product labelling.

One of the most common misconceptions in reading labels is assuming you know what the terms refer to when often times food corporations use slippery language that seems to mean one thing but actually refers to another. However this infographic helps to bridge that gap with a helpful visual dictionary guide that breaks down some of the jargon. For example, the term "gluten-free" means that the food "contains no more than 20 parts per million of gluten" and "low fat" refers to foods that have "less than 3 grams of fat per RACC" rather than no fat at all.
