Label Reading
Nutrition labels often claim that a product is a 'good' or 'excellent' source of a nutrient. What do these terms mean? 'Good' means that one serving provides between 10% and 19% of the Daily Value (or daily need) for that nutrient. 'Excellent' means that one serving provides 20% or more of the Daily Value. If you are concerned about getting enough of a particular nutrient, look for these terms on the nutrition label.
