Reading Nutrition Labels
Thursday, April 4th
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Label reading isn’t as straight forward as you might think. How a product is marketed can mislead how you interpret the product. An example? Spray oils are marketed as ‘fat-free’ yet the only ingredient is oil!? How do they do that? What does the FDA say on the label that allows that claim? Learn the answer to this and more.

Never heard of kale? Never at kale? Why should you eat kale? One cup of raw kale is a 1000 on the ANDI (aggregate nutrient density index). That means, compared to its 35 calories per cup, it packs a punch with vitamins A,C, manganese, calcium, K, B6, potassium, folic acid, copper, omega 3 and protein. WOW! I will be making 4 dishes to sample. Come hungry! RSVP laurie.atchison@wholefoods.com
