Fibre: For a food to qualify as a high

fibre food, it must contain 6g/100g of fibre.

Although fibre is a type of carbohydrate,

unlike sugar and starch, it is not digested

and travels through the digestive system.

It is therefore not counted as part of the

total carbs on food labels in the UK.

Polyols: Polyols are sugar alcohols

which are used to replace sugar in some

food products, especially those that are

aimed at people with diabetes. Polyols

are classed as nutritive sweeteners

because they still contain carbohydrate

and calories, however gram for gram they

have less of an effect on blood glucose

levels than sugar. In the nutritional panel

they are not classed as sugars but

will contribute to the total amount of

carbohydrate (below).

Starch: If starch is included in the

nutritional panel, the amount of starch

plus the amount of sugar would equal the

total amount of carbohydrate, as in the

example below:

If a food or drink product has 2 or more ingredients (including any additives), these

must be listed on the label. Ingredients must be listed in order of weight, with the

main ingredient first. This can be a quick way to look at what is in the food you

eat and because of how the ingredients is listed it should give you an indication

of how high or low a product is in sugar, fat and salt.

Sometimes a manufacturer may use a few different types of sugar in a food

product. This allows the various types of sugar to be listed further down the

ingredients list than if just one type of sugar was used, so it's helpful to know the

various names used for different types of sugar. Below are some examples.
