-Gives info on what nutrients are in the food.
-Other info given in percentages.
-Located on back of food packaging

Foods contain necessary minerals.

Percentages on the label tell you how this food assists you to meet the 2,000 calorie adult diet. For example, if you were looking at a nutrition fact label for crackers, you would see that
they provide less than 1 gram of fiber, only 3% of the person's daily needs.
So that means you would have to eat other foods to get 100% of the fiber needed each day. Similarly, the person would see that the crackers provide nothing toward the daily goals for vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, or iron. Healthy Life serving sizes
