Decoding Nutrition Labels

Posted by tinako on March 5, 2013

I few years ago I saw a video of Jeff Novick giving an 80 minute presentation of a simplified method of reading U.S. food labels to get past the health hype and find out if it’s good for you. Yes, it’s 80 minutes, but he was an engaging speaker explaining things fully and giving lots of practice examples. He’s an ex-Kraft Inc. nutritionist with a geeky sense of humor, and anyone was sure to learn something that will improve your health.

Unfortunately, I can’t find the full length presentation anymore.  However, I did find an article about his method at  I found the tip on salt particularly helpful.
