Intro

Comparing Food Labels Online:
This website compares UK foods online for calories, saturated fat, fat and salt (sodium).  These are the most important factors along with excercise when trying to meet UK health targets, controlling weight, reducing blood pressure, reducing cholesterol and preventing the onset of type 2 diabetes.
If you have tried comparing food labels when shopping you will have found that it’s impractical, it takes too much time because the choice is too vast and the information too complex,  so before you shop take a look at our ‘ Search All Foods’ link, it takes you to our online food comparison pages.  They will help you select healthy foods before you shop,  so you can take control of your body weight and the calorie, salt (sodium), saturated fat and fat content of your diet.  The four columns on the food comparison pages list the amount of sodium in grams per 100 grams, saturated fat in grams per 100 grams, fat in grams per 100 grams and calories per 100 grams in ingredients, products and meals sold in shops & supermarkets in the UK.  We are aware that other nutritional information may be important to you but these are the most important factors when preventing major health problems.  You can sort them using the column header arrows to compare salt (sodium) content, compare  fat content, compare saturated fat content & compare calories.  Take a note of the healthy products, brands & ingredients to buy and compare them with the ones you presently buy.  Apply strict portion control to those with high sodium and saturated fat content and consider them a rare treat.  You may well be able to meet your body weight targets and UK salt & fat targets if you do the right amount of exercise and buy the right ingredients, products and brands.
Food Diary:
Making a record of the food you eat is the only way of knowing your consumption of calories, saturated fat and salt (sodium) and ensure compliance with UK health targets.  Record food consumption and combine this with a daily record of activity and body weight to ensure you are living a healthy lifestyle.
