Food Label and Definition Table

Now, let's unravel the mysteries behind those food labels. Here's a handy table to help you decode some of the most common labels you encounter while grocery shopping: 

Food Label  Definition
Organic Organic agricultural farms and products must adhere to specific guidelines verified by a USDA-approved independent agency. These guidelines include avoiding synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, and GMOs, employing soil-building practices, providing outdoor access for livestock, and more. Products with the USDA organic seal contain 95%–100% organic ingredients.
Non-GMO Non-GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) labels indicate that a product does not contain genetically modified ingredients.
Gluten-Free Products labeled as gluten-free do not contain wheat, barley, rye, or their derivatives and are suitable for individuals with gluten intolerance or celiac disease.
Vegan Vegan products do not contain any animal-derived ingredients and are suitable for those following a vegan lifestyle.
Kosher Kosher products meet Jewish dietary laws and are certified by a rabbi or a recognized kosher certification agency.
Halal Halal products adhere to Islamic dietary laws and are prepared and processed according to specific Islamic guidelines.
All-Natural "All-natural" labels imply that a product contains no artificial ingredients, additives, or preservatives, although the term's exact meaning can vary.
Low-Fat Low-fat products contain reduced amounts of fat compared to their regular counterparts, often defined by specific fat content per serving.
Sugar-Free Sugar-free products contain little to no added sugar, making them suitable for those looking to limit sugar intake.
Whole Grain Whole grain labels indicate that a product uses the entire grain, including the bran, germ, and endosperm, providing more nutrients and fiber.
Fair Trade Fair trade products are produced and traded in a way that promotes fair wages, sustainability, and ethical treatment of workers in developing countries.
Cage-Free Cage-free labels apply to eggs and poultry products from animals not confined to small cages but do not guarantee access to outdoor space.
Grass-Fed Grass-fed labels on meat and dairy products indicate that the animals were primarily fed grass rather than grain-based diets.
