THE IMPORTANCE OF NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION

Nutritional information must include details about the important nutrients contained in specific foods in order to help consumers learn how to choose healthy foods and achieve a balanced diet.





Nutrition table

The following table indicates the daily required amounts of these compounds so they can be compared to the amounts in the dishes:


  Weight Height BMI Kcal/day Proteins g Carbs g Fats g
Man 72 180 22 2.200 60 275 70
Woman 62 170 22 1.900 58 260 63


* Medium build
* Light activity
* Age between 25 and 50. The elderly, children and pregnant women require specific variables.
* The body mass index (BMI) is between 20 and 25 for people of average weight.

 

The following information is included in the table presented:



Kcal. (per serving). 

A serving is the estimated, average quantity consumed of the food expressed in grams. This figure is used to establish the kilocalories of a serving, in other words, the energy it provides our organism. A man with a medium build and moderate daily activity should consume approximately 2,200 kcal. a day; and a woman with similar characteristics approximately 1,900 kcal. a day.


Carbohydrates (g per serving). 

The main function of these compounds is to provide energy to the body and they should represent 50-55% of the food consumed in a balanced diet.


Proteins (g per serving). 

Compounds that are important for structural, metabolic and regulatory functions in the body. Proteins should represent 12-15% of total energy consumed in a balanced diet, slightly increasing during stages of development and growth, such as infancy or pregnancy. For example, an adult weighing 65 kgs. should consume approximately 65-70 grams of proteins per day, as part of a 2,000-kcal diet.


Fats (g per serving). 

Fats provide energy and have various functions: they are the structural components of cell membranes; they are a vehicle for fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E and K) and contain essential fatty acids (those the human body cannot produce). These compounds should represent 30-35% of total daily energy intake, taking into account that they should mostly come from vegetable sources, such as olive oil. Fats of animal origin or saturated fats should be kept to a minimum.


Important nutritional characteristic. 

The special nutrient contained in the dish, or of which the food in the dish is a source, is described: fibre, PFA, calcium... The RDA (recommended daily allowance) is also included, expressed in %. This figure is the proportion of the recommended quantity to be consumed on a daily basis of a certain nutrient in order to maintain a healthy, balanced diet that covers fibre, vitamins and mineral needs.
