KEY WORDS TO LOOK FOR
KEY WORDS: WHOLE GRAIN, CALCIUM FORTIFIED, FORTIFIED, ENRICHED
Take advantage of these little words. They mean good things to you, especially in foods that are minimally processed. F.Y.I. “Wheat flour” isn’t whole grain flour “Whole wheat flour” is.
KEY WORDS: 100 PERCENT FRUIT JUICE
Drinks labeled “fruit juice drink,” “fruit flavored drink,” “fruit punch,” or “fruitade” usually consist of water, water, and water, loads of sugarand a small percentage of juice.
Check out the labelthe law says it has to reveal the percentage of actual juice content. Five percent juice? Thirty-five percent juice? Go for the ones that say 100 percent juice, and limit to six ounces (3/4 cup) per day.
If you want, you can take it home and stretch it by adding your own water and ice. Delicious!

KEY WORD: ORGANIC
“Natural” isn’t the same as “organic.” An “organic” food label is very specific: It certifies that the way the food is grown complies with regulations set up by the government. Organic food is great, but not essential. Food doesn’t have to be organic to be good for you. FYI: “Sustainable agriculture” refers to producing food with the goal of preserving land for future generations, being fair to labor, being healthy for consumers, being humane to animals, and being profitable to farmers and farming communities.
Other practices you may see noted on food labels may include raising poultry with freedom to roam outside, raising livestock that can graze in pastures, catching fish without harming the species or ecosystem, and growing coffee under shady trees.
Organic foods are great but not essential. Don’t stress if your produce isn’t organically grown.
