It’s time for a deep dive into everything we can learn about our food from the packaging and labelling, that isn’t just the ingredients.  I speak with Nicole Byrom, RD for the Canadian Celiac Association about how to read a nutrition facts label, including serving sizes and vitamin sources.  Nicole explains the mystery around best before dates and when not to buy or use a dented tin.  Sometimes we can find a gluten free claim as well as a may contains – seems like a contradiction, but Nicole explains what we are actually looking for in the packaging claims, as well as which ones don’t pertain to our gluten free diet.  Everything you didn’t know you that you didn’t know about product labels.

Here’s some links that Nicole mentioned –
