Food Label Assignment
Instructions: Go to a grocery store and look for grain products that are either predominately whole grain or not. For example, Products 1 and 2 are both bread products. Product 1 is predominately whole grain (meaning that a whole grain ingredient is listed first in the ingredient statement). Product 2 is a bread product that is not predominately whole grain.
For each product, list:
· the manufacturer and product name,
· the first ingredient listed in the ingredient statement, and
· any information on the label that relates to whole grains (health claims, statements such as “made with whole grain,” etc.) in the ‘Health Verdict’ column.
Note: whole wheat is not the only whole grain. Brown rice, whole corn, oats, etc. are also whole grains. For more information, see http://wholegrainscouncil.org/whole-grains-101/identifying-whole-grain-products
Manufacturer and Product Name
First ingredient listed in the ingredient statement
Product 1: Find a bread product (loaf bread, buns, tortillas, English muffins, etc.) that is predominately whole grain.
Product 2: Find a bread product that may appear to be predominately whole grain at first glance but is not. Specify why the label may confuse consumers.
Part 2. Nutrient Content Claims (16 points, 2 points each)
Instructions: Find one product with each of the following nutrient content claims on the label. First, list the product name (#1). Then tell how much of the nutrient (calories, fat, sugar, sodium) is in the product with the health claim, and how much of the same nutrient is in a “regular” version of that same product (#2). Are there any other health claims (ex: “helps reduce cholesterol”) on the label? Does the product fit into an overall healthy diet? Indicate any health claims and your assessment of the product (#3).
