Cautionary items
The NHS has developed a traffic light system to assess the nutrients' contents in each food item. It is measured in grams for 100 grams of food, or in percentage.
Calories in this food item are represented as a percentage of your total calorie budget for the day.
In the "Cautionary items" section, contents in fat, saturated fat, sugars, added sugars and salt expressed in percentages or in grams. Each nutrient is measured on a 4 colour scale (green, yellow, amber, red). The darker the colour where a nutrient quantity is measured, the more elevated this quantity is. Being in the red zone means that the quantity of a nutrient is above the high limit set by the NHS for 100 grams.
Calories in this food item are represented as a percentage of a limit set by the NHS. The NHS advises against the consumption of food products with an energy density in the red zone.
