Is it important to read the labels on food products when you are shopping?
Yes it is, because the label indicates a lot of useful information. The ingredients are listed in order by the amount in the food, from the highest to the lowest. The label also has to contain nutritional information, including the vitamins, amount of fat, sugar and calorie content. Labels also indicate the place of origin of the food. The packaging must also include an expiry date and some food must indicate the date of packaging as well as the company's contact information.
