Using nutritional information panels
Average serving size and servings per package are chosen by the manufacturer so can vary between brands as well as product type. Always check the serving size: if you're eating more than the recommended serve, you'll be exceeding the "quantity per serving information" in the panel.
Quantity per serving is helpful when consuming single serve products. Check serving size and servings per pack to determine nutritional information for multi-serve products.
Quantity per 100g is a handy way to compare products that have different weights or serving sizes. Use this information to determine whether a food is high or low in sodium.
% daily intake [%DI] for sodium is based on 2300mg, which is the maximum recommended daily intake for adults; 1600mg is the NHMRC’s suggested daily target while 460-920mg is an adequate adult intake for good health.
