“Low-Fat”

Translation: There’s less fat, but it’s been replaced by something else, such as sugar, which helps the product maintain its flavor. Whatever the added ingredients are, know that they tend to be more processed, often making the lower-fat version not as less healthy as the original.

Concerned about unhealthy fats in your food? Eat heart-healthy fats (like monounsaturated fats found in avocados and chocolate and omega-3s in fatty fish) in sensible portions.
