Only The Back Label Counts

When it comes to choosing healthier options at the grocery store, don’t be swayed by flashy front label claims. Terms like “heart-healthy,” “whole grains,” or “fiber-filled” that can often be misleading. The real story lies in the ingredient list on the back label. Watch out for ingredients like high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, sugar, and hydrogenated oils – they could be lurking behind the bold claims, compromising your health goals. Choose wisely by reading the back label first.
