Mayo Clinic Radio: Understanding the Nutrition Facts label

October 6, 2016

The Nutrition Facts label you find on your food packages is required by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. This label is supposed to provide detailed information about a food's nutrient content, such as the amount of fat, sugar, sodium and fiber it has, but, sometimes, these labels can confuse or mislead consumers. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, dietician Kate Zeratsky will help us understand food labels and we'll discuss the hot topic of ancient grains. Also on the program, family medicine physician Dr. Elizabeth Cozine will share the benefits of exercising during pregnancy. And, Shaun Heath, coordinator of the Mayo Clinic Bequest Program, explains how body donation plays a critical role in helping medical students master anatomy.

Listen to the program on Saturday, Oct. 8, at 9:05 a.m. CDT, and  follow #MayoClinicRadio.
