Understanding Food Labels
Nutrition labels have a lot of great information crammed into a small space. To help you make sense out of all of this information, we've added a great tool here that should clear up some of the common misconceptions about food labels. You can find it here.
A note about the source of our nutrient facts: Most of the food values on our site (including the ones in the Mustard Greens nutrition facts label above) were obtained from the United States Department of Agriculture National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference.
Our site uses the same standards for rounding nutrient values as food labels you'll find on cereal boxes and milk cartons. You can find these rules here: Nutrition Label Rounding
